Democrats on the House Oversight and Investigations Subcommittee call on Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., to remove his hold on S. 510, the food safety legislation pending in the Senate. Coburn is "holding food safety legislation hostage," said Henry Waxman, Energy and Commerce Committee chairman. Republicans are trying to prevent any legislation from passing, explained Rep. Edward Markey, D-Mass. Ranking Republican Michael Burgess, R-Texas, attempted to read a statement from Coburn indicating Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is delaying S. 510 during a Sept. 22 hearing, but Waxman turned off Burgess' microphone. Also during the hearing, FDA Principal Deputy Commissioner Joshua Sharfstein urged Congress to pass the bill, saying it will "do a lot more than help make eggs safer.
