Mass. House moves to allow school bake sales

Following a controversial state ban on bake sales in schools, the Massachusetts House of Representatives passed a budget amendment Wednesday that would allow individual cities and towns to decide whether they wish to prevent the sale of sweets during the school day.

The state Department of Public Health regulations set to take effect on Aug. 1 would prevent the sale of several foods and drinks, including cupcakes, cookies, and brownies in schools within 30 minutes of the start and end of classes.
