As your constituent, I urge you to oppose any efforts by your fellow Senators to pass S. 722, the so-called Dietary Supplement "Safety" Act, recently introduced by Senator Richard Durbin. I am deeply concerned that rather than passing this new act - which would unnecessarily expand the authority of the Food and Drug Administration - Congress should instead investigate and oversee ways in which the Food and Drug Administration can make full use of its current and more-than-adequate authority as granted by the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994.
