Currently, the House and Senate are working to combine their
separate versions of the Farm Bill through conference committee.
The Farm Bill doesn’t just affect farmers—it could have a
real impact on you and your family: sixteen million American jobs, grocery prices, GMO labeling laws, and
$1 trillion of your tax-dollars are
For the natural health community, there are multiple areas
of concerns in both versions of the bill. However, the final Farm Bill needs to
strike the King Amendment, which could undo state-level GMO labeling and animal
rights’ laws, as well as Section 1613, which would prevent any
agency from disclosing any information provided by an industrial farmer about
his or her land, no matter how critical that information is to the public’s
health and safety. The final Farm Bill should include Section 11321, which protects small farmers from burdensome FDA regulations.
