These Are The Battles!!!

Please ACT NOW! Fight the National Uniformity for Food Act! The Senate is expected to vote soon on the National Uniformity for Food Act (S. 3128), a bill that could wipe out an estimated 200 state and local food safety and labeling laws, including shellfish and milk safety laws, restaurant safety laws, and carcinogen and lead warning labels. The bill eliminates state laws that protect consumers in favor of a "uniform" lowest common denominator of existing federal food laws. Since this dangerous bill already passed in the House, your help is needed now to defeat it in the Senate. Learn more about this issue and send an e'mail to your senators. Please be sure to personalize the sample text and subject line so that your letter has the greatest impact. If you have already sent a letter on this issue, please call your senators to reinforce your message. Find your senators' phone numbers here.
