It is being confirmed that Senator McCain is withdrawing support from the Dietary Supplement Safety Bill that he introduced in February. Due to a push-push-back from so many – including the POP Campaign – and especially due to the outstanding education and ongoing discussions with Senators by the POP Campaign lobbyist, Beth Clay, Senator McCain now will be collaborating with Senator Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, on revised legislation.

There apparently will still be an effort to seek transparency and safety but without the intense new regulatory layers proposed in S 3002. In a March 4 letter, Senator Hatch thanks Senator McCain for shifting his position.

We will keep you posted on the outcome of the amendments as the crafting continues.

Thank you to everyone who called or sent in letters or participated in getting the word out. Thank you for the donations because these are keeping us alive to stay on the pulse and make a difference with you – keep the support coming as we need to continue showing up in a huge and effective way.
