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.

    Good grief! Tom wants to not only teach K-12 (toss in pre-school students), but he wants the taxpayers to feed them with money the State does not have.

    So what’s next? Will Tom be clothing them and tucking them in bed as well?
