Arkansas children who are beneficiaries of government food programs may be impacted by an upcoming vote on the Childhood Nutrition Reauthorization Act in the United States Congress this fall.
Arkansas’s U.S. Senator John Boozman visited the children’s library in Little Rock Friday to learn about summer nutrition programs for kids in the state. A member of the Senate Agriculture Committee, Boozman said he plans to vote in favor of the act.
“What I would like to do is find a lot more flexibility to the parties involved,” said Boozman.
