AUSTIN (AP) - Schools would be prohibited from selling sugary drinks under legislation approved by the Texas House.

The bill, which was adopted Tuesday, would ban the campus sale of drinks other than 1 percent milk, unsweetened water, 100-percent vegetable or fruit juices and zero-calorie electrolyte drinks.

The campus ban would only apply during the school day.
