AB 839 Held in Suspense

by

8.25.2011 AB 839 IconAB 839 was held in the Senate Appropriations suspense file today. While the bill will not make further progress this year, CFPA will continue working with the California Department of Education and other stakeholders to address the underutilization of the School Breakfast Program throughout our state. Whether through AB 839 or another policy proposal, CFPA will keep advocating for effective school breakfast solutions to better serve California's students. Thank you to all who've helped move AB 839 forward, especially our fantastic co-sponsors, the Junior Leagues of California State Public Affairs Committee.

For more information about AB 839 or the School Breakfast Program, please contact Tia Shimada at 510.433.1122 ext 109 or tia@cfpa.net.
