On our watchlist: Federal United States Legislation relating to food freedoms and farming.

Stop mandatory ID for livestock.

If this USDA rule is implemented, it would further consolidate the meat industry and could lead to forced mRNA vaccines for livestock.

House Joint Resolution 167

Disapproving the rule submitted by the Department of Agriculture relating to “Use of Electronic Identification Eartags as Official Identification in Cattle and Bison”.

Senate Bill 4282

A bill to prohibit the Secretary of Agriculture from implementing any rule or regulation requiring the mandatory use of electronic identification eartags on cattle and bison.

Remove USDA jurisdiction over Intrastate Commerce for Meat

The 1967 Wholesome Meat Act consolidated the meat packing industry. The PRIME act in the 2024 farm bill could roll this back and give jurisdiction back to the states.

House Resolution 2814

“Processing Revival and Intrastate Meat Exemption Act” or the “PRIME Act”.

Concerns about the Food Safety Modernization Act

The following aspects of the Food Safety Modernization Act limit food freedoms. Currently, there is no legislation of which we are aware aiming to address these issues.

  • Preventative Controls
  • Current Good Manufacturing Practises
  • Standards for the Growing, Harvesting, Packing and Holding of Produce for Human Consumption
  • Traceability requirements for certain foods
