WHEREAS an estimated 5,000 Americans die each year due to food-borne illnesses, many of them
young children lacking mature immune systems to fight off infection, and

WHEREAS the Centers for Disease Control reports that 76 million Americans each year fall ill after
eating tainted food, 325,000 of them sick enough to require hospitalization, and

You Start!
WHEREAS the recent nationwide illness outbreak caused by eating salmonella-tainted eggs
demonstrates that the Federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA) currently lacks sufficient
authority and is ill-equipped to inspect food facilities to the extent necessary to prevent pathogens
from entering the nation's food supply;

BE IT ENACTED BY THE STUDENT CONGRESS HERE ASSEMBLED THAT

The power of the FDA to inspect all food manufacturers and processors is expanded to:

a. test for dangerous pathogens;

b. trace outbreaks back to their sources and hold the responsible parties accountable;

c. issue mandatory recalls of product;

d. suspend a food facility's operation if found incompliant;

e. subject foods from overseas to the same standards as those for foods produced in the US.
You Start!

An Austrian needs to take this....... this "unconstrained vision", "government can" nonsense needs to get capped.

Why don't I take it? I might. Personal issues/schedule etc...

This is a f*cking billolution. Make it a bill, or make it a resolution. Stop being a dumba** and trying to combine the two.

I wanted to judge LD or Policy finals....but no, they give me Congress. haha anyway, good luck dude, since I'm assuming your using this site to get arguments for your tournament. (or u could just like debating formulated bills....who knows)

Think you mixed up two of your debates. You should change the title to have something to do with the FDA, or change the 1st round to have something to do with tax cuts.
