The author comments on a legislative bill and a ruling that may be considered significant to the U.S. food-service industry. With the deadline set on September 30, 2010, members of the U.S. Congress allegedly failed to pass a legislation that would reauthorize the Child Nutrition Act. Another issue considered by the author arise from a ruling imposed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) which prevents participants in the Women, Infants and Children (WIC) program from using federal money to purchase potatoes.
