House Passes Bill With IWG Language

On July 16, the U.S. House of Representatives passed the FY15 Financial Services Appropriations bill (H.R. 5016), which retains language prohibiting the Federal Trade Commission from moving ahead with implementation of the Interagency Working Group (IWG) proposed nutrition principles for food marketed to children without first conducting a cost-benefit analysis in accordance with a 2011 Executive Order prescribing regulatory courses of actions by federal agencies.

The Senate Appropriations Financial Services Subcommittee passed its FY15 spending draft, which also includes the IWG language, on June 24th. The full committee at this time has not yet scheduled a markup of its bill.
