Shay Totten On Chucking Federal Money & Free Lunches

“Fair Game” has learned the state Department of Education [3] missed out on more than $450,000 in federal school nutrition money last year because it didn’t have enough staff in the Child and Adult Care Food Program.
WCAX reporter Kristin Carlson asked the guv if he would be willing to give up his meals reimbursements like the VSEA, a move the union says will save the general fund $130,000. Douglas dodged the question at first, saying he wasn’t sure which meals were covered in his plan, and he didn’t want to negotiate a labor contract in the media.
