What we don’t need right now is this slow economy to close a 25 Billion dollar industry which is what the FDA has done with it’s "deeming regulations". Here is an update of what’s going on in Congress to stop the FDA.
The Cole-Bishop Amendment: Where is it now?
The Cole-Bishop Amendment passed the House Appropriations Committee on April 19, 2016, making its creators Rep. Sanford Bishop (D – GA) and Rep. Tom Cole (R – OK) very happy. However, due to bureaucratic “red tape,” the bill has largely remained stalled in Congress. By attracting two additional co-sponsors in Reps. Ashford and Peterson, the proposed legislation gains an extra punch of political power to move forward towards final approval at a substantially faster pace. It may also encourage other congressional leaders to jump on board as co-sponsors, as well.
