The U.S. House overwhelmingly passed a bill that would reverse a school nutrition program rule and allow whole milk back in school.  Ag Committee Chair Glenn GT Thompson’s Whole Milk for Healthy Kids bill didn’t have the votes to pass Tuesday but passed overwhelmingly Wednesday on a 330-99 margin.

Paul Bleiberg from the National Milk Producers Federation tells Brownfield the members of Congress paid attention to recent scientific studies.
