Gov Malloy is against ban on chocolate milk, but will he veto the bill?

photoAndrew Doba, director of communications for Governor Dannel P. Malloy, indictaed today that a bill that would ban chocolate milk in public schools could be veto fodder, but didn’t commit.

“This specific bill has not yet come to the Governor’s desk and will be reviewed in detail when it arrives,” Doba said. “However, on the broader topic at hand, the Governor is not supportive of banning chocolate milk in public schools.  While we must be extremely mindful of the nutritional value of what’s offered to students, ensuring an appropriate array of options helps to ensure that kids receive the calcium and other nutrients they need.”
