Bar on FTC Issuing Final IWG Report Continued

Chairman Ander Crenshaw (R-FL, 4) of the House Appropriations Subcommittee for Financial Services and General Government has included language in his draft appropriations bill that will continue to block the FTC from releasing a final Interagency Working Group (IWG) report until the FTC complies with Executive Order 13563. This language, which was previously championed by former Congresswoman Jo Ann Emerson of Missouri, was presented by Representative Kevin Yoder (R-KS, 3). This draft bill is scheduled for a mark-up on Wednesday, July 10, 2013. The relevant language is available on page 103, Section 621.

This is an important step, especially as pressure on food companies expands globally and in the press. If you have questions, please contact Dan Jaffe at 202-296-1883 or via email (djaffe@ana.net).
