(Washington, DC) -- First Lady Michelle Obama is going fork-to-fork with House Republicans and food industry leaders who want to cut back on school lunch standards. She's expected to testify against a bill that would allow school districts to opt out of federal rules limiting sodium and requiring more fresh fruits and vegetables in lunches. The food industry is pushing the measure that has the backing of House Republicans. Today's speech will be a rare move for the First Lady, who typically steers clear of legislative battles.
