Dietary Supplement Caucus
Established in 2006, the congressional Dietary Supplement Caucus (DSC) provides a forum for sharing information about dietary supplements. Currently the DSC is co-chaired by Sens. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, and Martin Heinrich, D-N.M., and Reps. Mia Love, R-Utah, and Jared Polis, D-Colo. With 32 members of Congress, the DSC serves as a bipartisan congressional group of legislators, who promote discussions among lawmakers about the benefits of dietary supplements; provide tips and insights for better health and wellness; and promote research about the health care savings these products provide. In a recent letter confirming the DSC to the Committee on House Administration, the DSC writes, “The caucus seeks to enhance Congressional attention to the role of supplements in health promotion, disease prevention and address the regulation of the supplement industry.” The DSC sponsors regularly scheduled luncheon briefings on Capitol Hill for members of Congress, their staffers, the media and the public.
