Illinois lawmakers are considering a bill that would change the way school districts in the state solicit food service contracts.  The measure would allow officials to negotiate for higher quality products.  The proposal follows complaints that many schools offer unhealthy food.  The bill was passed by the Illinois House’s Elementary and Secondary Education committee last week and could be called for a vote before the full House.
