[Page: H982] GPO's PDF
Mr. CONYERS. Mr. Speaker, I was unavoidably absent during some of the votes on amendments to H.R. 339, the ``Personal Responsibility in Food Consumption Act.'' I would like the Record to reflect that, had I been present, I would have voted in the following manner:
Watt No. 6/ Scott (exempt state agency actions to enforce state consumer protection laws concerning mislabeling or other unfair and deceptive trade practices): ``Yes.''
Watt No. 7 (preserve the right of state courts to hear cases brought under state law): ``Yes.''
Andrews No. 2 (exempt manufacturers of genetically modified foods that do not disclose that the food is genetically modified from the legal immunity provided in the bill): ``Yes.''
Ackerman No. 1 (exempt manufacturers and sellers of foods that have not taken steps to prevent meat from being tainted with mad cow disease from the legal immunity provided in the bill): ``Yes.''
