Send a live email message to your Senators through the online petition to Reject S.510.
The “lame duck” session of Congress begins today and S.510 –the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act–is scheduled for a cloture vote sometime this week.
S.510 is a major threat to the local food movement. It greatly expands FDA’s jurisdiction over intrastate commerce and imposes one-size-fits-all regulations that will make it more difficult for small farms and food processors to remain in business.
It is urgent that you call your Senators and ask them to oppose S.510.
