Case Detail

In re: Food & Nutrition Service Local School Wellness Policy Implementation
(Regulatory Proceeding)
On July 21, 2016, the Department of Agriculture’s Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) issued a final rule that in part bans advertising of certain "disfavored" products on public school grounds. WLF had argued in comments filed with USDA that the FNS proposal not only violates the rights of advertisers and consumers, but also imposes unconstitutional conditions on local school officials’ receipt of federal funds. FNS failed to address WLF's First Amendment concerns when offering a justification for its action and a response to public comments in the rule.
Case Status:
Final rule issued.
