GOP lawmaker slams school lunch regs

A key GOP lawmaker says that kids going back to school this fall are unlikely to have tastier lunches because administration officials won't "roll back" strict nutritional standards.

Indiana Rep. Todd Rokita (R) — chairman of a House Education subcommittee — tells The Hill's Molly K. Hooper that he doesn't "see any kind of rollback happening voluntarily" with regards to current regulations governing what kids eat on school cafeteria and how meals are prepared.

Rokita explains that the current standards are "just too onerous for schools to comply anymore and so you're seeing a tremendous decrease in the number of schools and students participating in the programs."
