I created a petition in support of Rep Diana DeGette's legislation . Please sign it and let others know about it.
The Bush administration's general hostility to government regulation of industry makes the FDA claims of helplessness ring hollow. If, though, it lacks authority to require full trace-back capabilities, Congress should grant it -- indeed, mandate it -- forthwith. Rep. Diana DeGette, D-Colo., has proposed such legislation.
H.R.3484 Title: To amend the Federal Meat Inspection Act, the Poultry Products Inspection Act, and the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act to provide for improved public health and food safety through enhanced enforcement, and for other purposes. Sponsor: Rep DeGette, Diana [CO-1] (introduced 9/6/2007) Cosponsors (6) Latest Major Action: 9/6/2007 Referred to House subcommittee. Status: Referred to the Subcommittee on Health.
