I agree...just find it crazy that the law hasn't been finalized after four years. Like I said...this was one very small step forward....I also felt strongly as a community we shouldn't let this thing fall short of the target.

From my experience trying to write what became HIPAA, it takes a long time getting these "fringe" things passed. Even when you can get legislators excited about a bill, it gets re-worked and, 15 years later, becomes a law that resembles, but is not really, what you wanted. In the case of HIPAA, I wanted more restrictive laws like Kansas had at the time. anyway...that is off-topic. The point being, on this gluten-free legislation, we are ahead of a lot of health related laws. Not sure about food safety laws. This is a bit of a mess because - is it health care or is it food safety/FDA?

We will see...
