Executive SummaryReps. Dan Burton, R-Ind., and Jared Polis, D-Colo., both Congressional Dietary Supplement Caucus co-chairs, reaffirm their support for the supplement industry and say they will work to minimize government intervention. "One of the things I'm concerned about is that we make absolutely sure that government intervention in the supplement industry is absolutely minimal," Burton said during a Nov. 4 briefing on sports nutrition and dietary supplements held by the Council for Responsible Nutrition and the Natural Products Association. "I don't want the pharmaceutical industry or any other industry trying to do away with [the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act] and take over the supplement industry," he added. Burton said he, Polis and other caucus members want "to do everything we can to make sure that [the supplement industry] remains as independent of the government as much as possible.
