Tell Congress that Americans Don’t Deserve Second-Rate Protections

Dirty food, dirty air, dirty water—that’s what we’ll get if we don’t stop Congress from passing the Filthy Food Act. (Okay, the real, but deceptive, name of the bill is the Regulatory Accountability Act.) The bill would trump other laws to put business interests before the public interest at every turn. The FDA and other agencies would be forced to pick the cheapest—not the best—solution to important health and food safety issues. Urge your senators not to sell out Americans to Big Food and Big Business.
