Health,

Stop the Food Uniformity Bill

House of representative just passed a bill that threatens to undue decades of state level food safety protections. The bill proposes to centralize food safety regulation to the federal level and take the power away from the states and disallowing the states to have their own refulations. This bill is opposed by many environmental, health and consumer rights organizations, 39 state Attorneys General, 7 state Governors, the National Association of State Departments of Agriculture, the Association of Food and Drug Officials, the National Conference of State Legislators, the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture and me.

There’s a myriad of half-truths and deceptions from supporters of this bill. The Consumers Union has a list of these, with answers. Click Here

The bill already passed in the House of Representatives. I had emailed my congresswoman Zoe Lufgren. She supported my position and voted no. Nevertheless, it passed through the House of Representatives. It hasn’t passed the Senate. So please send an email to your Senators and let them know you care about the future of your food and your health. Click Here to Send an Email to Your Senator
