Free­dom to fry is re­in­stated

Los Angeles Times - - CHARLESTON CHURCH SHOOTING -

It’s about free­dom, not the fries.

So says new Texas Agri- cul­tural Com­mis­sioner Sid Miller, a Repub­li­can, who said the state would re­peal a decade-old ban on deep fry­ers in public school kitchens.

He said gov­ern­ment man­dates had failed to make chil­dren health­ier in Texas, where about twothirds of res­i­dents are con­sid­ered over­weight or obese.

Miller is also lift­ing re­stric­tions on soft drinks in school vend­ing ma­chines.

The Amer­i­can Heart Assn., the Texas PTA and school nu­tri­tion­ists op­posed the changes.
