RE: House Passes HR 2749! FOOD FASCISM Bill to Senate Next
Sounds a lot like the Bill C-6 C-36 (Consumer Products and Safety Act) Legislation that is going on in Canada.

Quote:H.R. 2749: Food Safety Enhancement Act of 2009
Occurred: Introduced Jun 8, 2009
Occurred: Passed House Jul 29, 2009
Not Yet Occurred: Senate Vote ...
Not Yet Occurred: Signed by President ...

This bill has been passed in the House. The bill now goes on to be voted on in the Senate. Keep in mind that debate may be taking place on a companion bill in the Senate, rather than on this particular bill. [Last Updated: Jun 27, 2010 8:50AM]

Last Action: Aug 3, 2009: Received in the Senate and Read twice and referred to the Committee on Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions.

Jul 29, 2009: This bill failed in the House of Representatives by roll call vote. The vote was held under a suspension of the rules to cut debate short and pass the bill, needing a two-thirds majority. This usually occurs for non-controversial legislation. The totals were 280 Ayes, 150 Nays, 3 Present/Not Voting.

Jul 30, 2009: This bill passed in the House of Representatives by roll call vote. The totals were 283 Ayes, 142 Nays, 8 Present/Not Voting.
