LANSING, MI (AP) – Brownies, doughnuts and other sweets could be part of school bake sales again under a bill approved by the House.
The bill was approved 66-43 in the House Wednesday.
It would allow a minimum of two fundraising activities each week that don’t meet federal nutrition guidelines. While states can set the number of fundraisers school districts can have that don’t meet the federal guidelines, the Michigan Department of Education had decided not to allow any.
The Senate voted 36-1 to approve a version of the bill in March that would have allowed a minimum of three fundraising activities each week that don’t meet federal nutrition guidelines.
If the Senate concurs in the House changes, the bill will go to Gov. Rick Snyder for his signature.
