From a friend, RE: HR 875 “The legislation proposed will help us, not harm us.”
From a friend:
“The sponsor of HR 875 is as much of (if not more) an advocate for organic food, small farming and natural health as anyone you know. She has been at the forefront of these issues for decades, protecting small farmers, land encroachment and agribusiness from taking over. One of her cosponsors, Chris Murphy who happens to be my congressman, is similarly inclined. I have supported both of them for many years. These are the good people in CT, not the bad ones.
“In fact, everyone in this field agrees (except some Libertarians) that Food Safety is a primary concern now and is unreasonably mishandled by current, outdated government agencies — if handled at all. What is in dispute is how a Food Safety bill should be worded, what controls it should allow and exactly when and how such legislation will emerge. This process is going to take a year — not two weeks. There are currently 5 different versions of these bills in various committees — all being rewritten, adjusted, edited, etc. toward discussions over the coming months.
“The accusations made on various website are also false. Rosa is not married to Stan Greenberg, who does not work for Monsanto. In reality, more careful regulation of imported foods will improve local and organic farming practices and enhance small farmers — not the opposite, as suggested on some sites.”
