Washington, D.C. The Select Committee met at 10 a.m., pursuant to call, in room 1114, of the New Senate Office Building, the Honorable George McGovern, chairman of the committee, presiding:
Present: Senators McGovern, Hart, and Cook.
Staff members present: Kenneth Schlossberg, staff director; Gerald S. J. Cassidy, general counsel; and Judah Sommer, minority counsel.
OPENING STATEMENT OF SENATOR MCGOVERN, CHAIRMAN Senator McGOVERN. The committee will please come to order. Today's hearing deals with the proposed regulations of August 13 which reduce the reimbursement rate to 35 cents for free and reducedprice school lunches.
Over the last 2 weeks the Select Committee has been besieged by literally hundreds of State and local school lunch directors and by community representatives of all kinds, with urgent requests that we hold a hearing on the proposed regulations at the earliest possible date.
I cannot recall any time since this committee has been in operation when there has been such an outcry against a proposed regulation as we have heard over the past 2 weeks. Thirty-seven State school lunch directors, meeting in Minneapolis on August 5 through 7, unanimously condemned the new regulations and have called upon this committee to hold these hearings today.
BASIC POINT OF DISAGREEMENT
There is one basic point of disagreement that we are going to deal with in today's hearings. The question is very sharply drawn, and it is just that single issue that we will be looking at: The August 13th regulations which the Department of Agriculture claims are designed to assist the States to do a better job in carrying out the congressional intent of Public Law 91–248, that every eligible child “shall be served meals free or at a reduced cost;" and, on the other hand, the point of view of the State school lunch directors' unanimous position that this new regulation will bring the School Lunch Program-in their words— "to a screeching halt."
