Camp, Brady, and Kingston Alert Colleagues to Phony Food Safety Provision in Agriculture Appropriations Bill

July 08, 2009

Washington, DC — Ways and Means Ranking Member Dave Camp (R-MI), Trade Subcommittee Ranking Member Kevin Brady (R-TX), and Appropriations Subcommittee (Agriculture, Rural Development, Food and Drug Administration, and Related Agencies) Ranking Member Jack Kingston (R-GA) issued a letter to colleagues today highlighting the flaws and dangers of a provision that would prevent under any circumstance the importation of poultry from China.  The provision has no food safety basis while putting at risk American jobs and millions of dollars of U.S. poultry exports to China.
