Not On My Watch

Not that I need another reason to support legislation protecting our state sovereignty, but this administration seems hellbent on giving me more and more each week.

WASHINGTON — Don’t touch my brownies!

A child nutrition bill on its way to President Barack Obama — and championed by the first lady — gives the government power to limit school bake sales and other fundraisers that health advocates say sometimes replace wholesome meals in the lunchroom.

Republicans, notably Sarah Palin, and public school organizations decry the bill as an unnecessary intrusion on a common practice often used to raise money.

“This could be a real train wreck for school districts,” Lucy Gettman of the National School Boards Association said Friday, a day after the House cleared the bill. “The federal government should not be in the business of regulating this kind of activity at the local level.”

The federal government has absolutely no authority to impose this kind of restriction on our public schools in New Hampshire. I will do everything in my power to see that such unconstitutional power grabs are deemed null and void within our state’s borders.

These decisions should be left up to our local school boards, parents and educators.

Period.
