Executive Summary

Dietary supplements are covered by federal legislation to prevent states from establishing notification requirements providing warnings concerning food safety or "any component or package of the food, unless such a notification requirement has been prescribed under the authority of this Act." HR 2129 was introduced in the House June 10 by Richard Burr (R-N.C.) with 13 cosponsors; the Senate bill, S 1155, was introduced May 27 by Pat Roberts (R-Kan.) and seven cosponsors. The Consumer Healthcare Products Association supports the legislation; the group says state proposals to regulate supplements are unnecessary in a position paper entitled "State Regulation of Dietary Supplements" (1"The Tan Sheet" May 17, p. 12)
