NEW YORK – Attorney General Letitia James led a multistate coalition of 20 attorneys general in pushing back against the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) proposed rollbacks of nutrition standards for school meals. In comments filed with the Trump USDA, the coalition argues that the proposed rule would substantially weaken existing standards for the school meals that tens of millions of children rely on every day, including 1.6 million children in New York alone, and lacks any sound basis in nutrition science.
