Assemblyman Tom Torlakson, D-Antioch, will announce emergency legislation to ensure the survival of California’s school meal program, which is projected to run out of funding before the end of the school year.

Torlakson will appear with state Superintendent of Public Instruction Jack O’Connell at press conferences on Friday in San Leandro and Los Angeles.

Torlakson, by the way, is running for the job held by O’Connell, who terms out in 2010.
