This commonsense, bipartisan bill ensures that Buy American provisions in the National School Lunch Program are followed by requiring waivers whenever school food authorities want to buy foreign commodities or products because of the scarcity or cost of domestic options.
The current exceptions process for Buy American provisions in the National School Lunch Program is sufficient, as a more stringent waiver request process would lead to more domestic goods being purchased which cost taxpayers more.
