Dear Colleagues --
Attached is a Washington update from Peter and Trish reporting on the remarkable and, indeed, historic events on the Hill in just the past few weeks.
Amidst the chaos, there is a new and important initiative which you will find under the SNAP & WIC header. Congressman Mike Rogers has introduced the SNAP Vitamin and Mineral Improvement Act of 2017. This bill would allow purchase of multivitamins within the SNAP program. The Dear Colleague letter provides further details. This is a bill fully supported by the dietary supplement associations, and we will join efforts to advance it's prospects of passage in the Congress -- a daunting task. As circumstances evolve, we will call upon our membership to reach out to Congress to support this bill.
