The US House of Representatives plans to vote on a bill aimed at alleviating the baby formula shortage on Wednesday. The $28 million Access to Baby Formula Act would allow beneficiaries of the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) to apply vouchers to any type of baby formula.
President Biden invoked the Defense Production Act to increase baby formula supplies and offered U.S. planes to speed shipments from abroad as the country faces a shortage that has sown fear and frustration among parents.
President Joe Biden on Wednesday invoked the Defense Production Act to speed production of infant formula and authorized flights to import supply from overseas.
What people are saying?
Scale of Judgment Just want to point out. Abott Nutrition that makes the baby formula did not have to continue with its poor standard when it was reported in October via whistleblower. The company whistleblower relied on the government to fix this over their own company. That how bad it was.
TheTickerPicker Bad move politically here. For 17 months his voters/bots believed he didn’t have the authority to fix anything. Now they might actually ask him to work on this inflation thing next.
