DSHEA defender Senator Mark Udall acknowledges citizen letters on NDIN


 

SENATOR MARK UDALL  
UNITED STATES SENATE

June 25, 2012

Dear David,

 

Thank you for contacting my office regarding your concerns about the regulation and safety of dietary supplements.  I appreciate hearing your views on this issue.

 

Congress enacted the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act in 1994 to provide a framework for evaluating supplement safety, ingredient and nutrition labeling and manufacturing practices.  Several bills have been introduced during the 112th Congress to address the regulation and safety of dietary supplements.  Most recently, there was an amendment (#2127) offered during the U.S. Senate's debate over the Food and Drug Administration Safety and Innovation Act (S.3187), which would have revised labeling guidelines for dietary supplements and required manufacturers to register their products with the Food and Drug Administration.

 

Taking into account the important role of dietary supplements in the personal health decisions of thousands of Coloradans, I believe a balance can be struck between ensuring consumer safety while preserving consumer choice.  Like you, I also believe we must avoid discouraging responsible natural food and dietary supplement producers through unreasonable regulatory red tape.  You will be glad to know that I joined my Senate colleagues in defeating this amendment by a bipartisan vote of 20-77 (Vote #110, S.3187) on May 24, 2012.

 

I will continue to listen closely to what you and other Coloradans have to say about matters before Congress, the concerns of our communities, and the issues facing Colorado and the nation.  My job is not merely about supporting or opposing legislation, but also about bridging the divide that has paralyzed our nation's politics.  For more information about my positions and to learn how my office can assist you, please visit my website at www.markudall.senate.gov

 

Warm regards,
 

Mark Udall
U.S. Senator, Colorado
