I received this from the Union of Concerned Scientist action list that I am on.

After more than a decade of consideration and hundreds of thousands

of public comments, the USDA implemented strong federal organic


Now, just a few months after the standards went into effect,

Congressman Nathan Deal (R-GA) attached a last-minute rider to the

omnibus appropriations bill that was signed into law February 20th.

The rider allows poultry and livestock producers to use non-organic

feed, but still label their products as organic. Senators Patrick

Leahy (D-VT) and Olympia Snowe (R-ME) and Congressman Sam Farr (D-CA)

have introduced legislation to rescind this insidious rider.
