What is the timeline for the Healthy Kids Act?
In December 2008, the State Board of Education took the first step toward adoption of two sets of rules. The rules in chapter 58 set nutrition content standards; the rules in chapter 12 discuss the CPR and physical activity requirements. A public hearing on the rules was held via ICN on February 3, 2009. Several persons offered comment on the rules. The Administrative Rules Review Committee (ARRC) of the Legislature discussed the rules at its meeting on February 6, 2009. The State Board adopted the rules at its April 30, 2009 meeting. The ARRC will hold a final hearing on the rules at its June meeting (exact date and time unknown).
