H.R. 942/S. 327, the Audit the Pentagon Act, would compel the Department of Defense to account for how it spends taxpayer money, also known as our money. Tales of Pentagon waste and fraud are legion, yet the Defense Department doesn't properly account for the money it spends (or wastes, as the case may be), though we actually do have laws that tell them to do that. As it happens, the House and Senate versions would approach their stated aim differently -- the House version would simply cut discretionary defense spending by half a percentage point if the Defense Department doesn't produce a clean audit, while also preventing the Secretary of Defense from trying to achieve that cut out of soldiers' pay or health care, but the Senate version is rather more convoluted, imposing consequences for failing to produce an audit that include more supervision of defense spending and the Defense Department being unable to move funds around after 2019. Maybe it'll work, but why be an engineer when a hammer will do the job? So CREDO helps you support the House version of the Audit the Pentagon Act.
Meanwhile, with the various House and Senate versions of the so-called Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act dead for the moment, S. 2621, the Biotechnology Food Labeling Uniformity Act, would require the FDA to mandate that all genetically-modified organisms in food to be labeled as such. Labeling could occur in four different ways under Section 2 of the bill, and none of these ways, you'll note, are the QR codes you can't read without a smartphone -- all four ways are, in fact, easily decipherable by anyone who can read. The bill does contain a few exemptions (for food in which genetically-engineered organisms comprise less than 0.9% of the food's weight, or for food produced using genetically-engineered vaccines or enzymes), but while these exemptions may wind up exempting the entire cheese industry, for example, the bill is still tighter with regard to exemptions than Vermont's law -- which would be nullified, if S. 2621 passes. Hence Just Label It helps you tell your Senators to pass stronger GMO labeling legislation than they've thus far considered.
