Update on HR 2749: the FDA-expanding, anti-Family Farms bill

Posted by Andrew Ward on 07/29/09 9:24 PM

Thanks to grassroots efforts around the country, HR 2749, the so-called Food Safety Act of 2009, failed to pass through a special parliamentary procedure that limited debate but required a higher percentage vote (2/3 of the House) in order to pass.

But now is not the time to celebrate. The margin of victory was only 7 votes, and a simple majority vote can come as early as tomorrow (that's Thursday, the 29th).

Please take the time to contact your congressman AGAIN to voice your opposition over HR 2749 and the attempts to rush this unjust bill through without debate.
