No debate, no surprise: Adam Putnam's school-lunch transfer passes Senate

Senators unanimously approved Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam's plan to steal away school food and nutrition programs from the Department of Education, pushing Florida closer to becoming the third state with the arrangement.

There was no debate.

Florida would join a league of just Texas and New Jersey if SB 1312/PCB SAC 1101 becomes law.

The House is poised to take up his priority Monday. Gov. Rick Scott has not announced a position on the transfer.
