July 29, 2009

     The U.S. House of Representatives, at 3:30 PM EST, on July 29th, voted against H.R.2749, the so-called “Food Safety Act of 2009.”  This Act would have given the Federal Government unprecedented powers and control over the United States food supply, all in the supposed name of “food safety” but at great expense to health freedom.  Fortunately, enough U.S. lawmakers saw through this charade to vote against the House Leadership’s strong push to pass this Bill through a special parliamentary procedure that limited debate but required a higher percentage vote in order to pass.

     The vote today was 280 For and 150 Against the Motion to suspend the rules and pass H.R.2749. Under suspension, 2/3rds in favor are needed, or 287 Yea votes, for a Bill to pass.  148 No votes were needed to defeat the Bill.  Many Democrats joined with Republican House members in opposition, voting against this Bill that would have made food less safe, not safer.

     Is H.R.2749 dead for the rest of this session of Congress?  No.  The Bill stays on the regular order calendar and can be brought back up for a recorded vote later in the Session.  So, the Federation will stay on top of this Bill in order to be sure it is defeated once and for all.  With your support and quick action we can defeat H.R. 2749 again when it is brought to a vote again.

     In the meantime, we thank all of our NHF members who contacted their Representatives to register their active opposition to this monstrosity.  You made your voices heard.

     But do not rest on your laurels, contact your Representatives again to thank them for their support (or condemn them for not supporting health freedom) and urge them to vote against any and all attempts to pass H.R.2749! This is important.
