POISONED PET FOOD:
WILL THE US FOOD SAFETY BILLS DIE A LEGISLATIVE DEATH ?:
Molly wants to call attention to a recent comment posted on the Itchmo Blog about the Durbin (senate) and DeLauro (house) bills that purport to address the deficiencies in US food safety that the pet food crisis has exposed. Each house of the US Congress has referred their separate bills to the other for consideration. Neither house has taken up the other's bill for consideration, even though both passed by unanimous consent. There they have sat for weeks without any action. They appear on no calenders for debate. Is this a sneaky legislative way to kill bills while still giving an illusion of action ?
