This data includes the $628.27 billion overall economic impact of dairy products produced and sold in the United States.

Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) and Pat Toomey (R-PA) last week introduced the bipartisan and bicameral Sugar Policy Modernization Act, legislation that they said would phase market reforms into the U.S. sugar program. According to an exclusive article from The Hagstrom Report, Foxx said in a news release that the bill would lift restrictions on the domestic production and sale of refined sugar; reduce taxpayer liability to loan forfeitures when sugar processors decide not to pay back their U.S. Department of Agriculture loans; ensure domestic demand for sugar is considered when USDA administers the sugar program; and bring market forces into the U.S. sugar market and phase out supply-management policies.

The Food and Drug Administration this week proposed a rule to revoke a health claim for soy protein and the risk of coronary heart disease. This is the first time that the agency has proposed to revoke a health claim that was originally put into place under its "significant scientific agreement" criteria. In the announcement, FDA said numerous studies have presented inconsistent findings on the relationship between soy protein and heart disease since it adopted the health claim in 1999. “These significant scientific agreement claims are based on a longstanding consensus in the scientific community, so we don’t expect to see any other immediate changes from the agency,” said Cary Frye, IDFA senior vice president of regulatory affairs.
