Vote Description

Food Safety. S 510 (Roll Call 257)



On November 30, 2010, the Senate passed a bill overhauling food safety laws, expanding Food and Drug Administration enforcement powers and adding 18,000 federal employees. The bill enormously increased the regulatory red tape to operate farms and processing centers but did nothing to reduce the many agencies now dealing with the same issue and did not in fact increase meat and poultry safety. ACU opposed this vast expansion of the regulatory powers of the FDA, but the Senate passed it by a vote of 73-25.
