NEW YORK, Jan. 31, 2018 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — The following is a statement from Tusk / Montgomery Philanthropies regarding Washington State’s recent passage of Breakfast After the Bell legislation:
“Today’s passage of Breakfast After the Bell legislation (HB 1508) is a victory for thousands of school children throughout Washington State. Ensuring children are fed is not a Republican or Democrat issue, it’s common sense. Senator Lisa Wellman and Representative Monica Stonier were relentless in advocating for the bill. Washington’s passage of this important legislation comes on the heels of Governor Cuomo including a similar proposal in his most recent budget along with a strong push in New Jersey and Tennessee.”
Tusk / Montgomery Philanthropies has been instrumental in securing passage of Breakfast After the Bell legislation across the country including Illinois and Pennsylvania. It is currently engaged in ongoing efforts to pass legislation in New York, New Jersey and Tennessee.
