One Woman Food Fight

The local press must not be accepting congresswoman Anna Eshoo's (D-CA) press releases. One of the recent missives (March 2, 2006) spoke of her opposition to the proposed National Uniformity of Food Act. According to my reading of the act, the Food and Drug Administration would like to have local food laws conform to the standards set forth in the federal laws. Eshoo thinks this is a bad idea because it somehow prevents state and local officials from carrying out their vital national security activities.

It's hard to know what to make of the local congresswoman. In 2004 Eshoo was urging just the opposite. Back then, federal standards were the right way to go. Again the issue was safety. Now I suppose its possible to be of two minds on these issues. But, could it also signal two special interest groups have her ear? Hey, you think it's cheap running for office unopposed?
