Sen. Tom Coburn put a “hold” on S.510 – the dangerous “food safety” bill. He gives his reasons here.
A “hold” is a Senator’s advance warning that he or she will filibuster a bill. This means 60 votes is needed to pass it.
Coburn’s hold led Majority Leader Harry Reid to postpone a vote until the lame-duck session after the November elections. The window for passing a final bill is now very small. With your help, it will be slammed shut for good.
Your letters have helped delay passage for this long. With your continued pressure, we can kill the bill once and for all.
That’s why we’re asking you tell your Senators to support Coburn and filibuster S.510 using DownsizeDC.org’s Freedom to Farm Campaign.
