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)
