Sen. John Fetterman (D-Pa.) objected to a new school lunch resolution introduced by his colleague Roger Marshall (R-Kan.) on Tuesday.
The resolutionoriginally introduced in July by a number of senators and added to the calendar last week, does not match recent ones Guidance from the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) regarding gender discrimination.
“I can’t even believe this resolution is even real. This allows a random lunch lady to deny lunch to a hungry child because she says her God told her so. School lunch should be free and definitely free of judgment,” Fetterman said in a statement.
“Don’t we have better things to do in the House of Lords than to bully children because of their personalities?” Fetterman continued.
In his own opinion In July after the resolution was introduced, Marshall said that the Biden administration was “weaponizing school lunch program funding to force public schools to embrace Joe Biden’s transgender agenda.”
“The USDA has NO authority to force our children to comply with wake-up rules, such as: “For example, requiring biological boys to have access to girls’ restrooms and locker rooms, or allowing biological boys to compete against biological girls in girls’ sports,” Marshall said in the statement.
