Natural Products Industry Urged To Be Vigilant During Lame Duck Congressional Session

November 3, 2010: 11:05 AM EST

The Natural Products Association (NPA) is warning its members to stay alert during the lame duck session of the U.S. Congress to make sure legislators soon to be out of power don’t “try to slip their pet proposals into must-pass legislation, like the spending bill.” A particularly noxious example that might rise from the dead is a bill that would add more enforcement authority to the Federal Trade Commission. An NPA official said the organization supports FTC actions “aimed at getting the bad actors out of the market” but not efforts that target “the legitimate industry” especially if they supersede current law. Another bad piece of legislation that might pop up again, the NPA warned, is Sen. John McCain’s Dietary Supplement Safety Act.
