IDFA Develops Online Federal Bill Tracking Tool for Members
IDFA's legislative department currently is tracking 49 federal bills that have been introduced and are pending in Congress. The bills cover a wide variety of agricultural, dairy and trade issues, including nutrition, cloning, milk marketing reform, sustainability, food safety, terrorism, free trade agreements, risk management, farm stewardship and more. To help members stay up to date on each of these issues, IDFA has developed a federal legislation matrix that describes each bill, identifies the bills' sponsors and outlines the current status. The matrix will be updated as needed and posted online in the Legislation section at www.idfa.org.
