Congress Passes Ferguson Bill to Boost Domestic Baby Formula Production

Today, Congress passed the Bulk Infant Formula to Retail Shelves Act, bipartisan legislation that would boost domestic baby formula production and get more product on shelves amid the continued shortage across the United States. The House unanimously approved the legislation by voice vote this afternoon. Earlier in the day, the bill passed the Senate unanimously. It now goes to President Biden for his signature.

The bill was introduced on Monday by House Ways and Means Trade Subcommittee Member Drew Ferguson (GA-03), Ranking Member Adrian Smith (NE-03), Chairman Earl Blumenauer (OR-03), and Members Suzan DelBene (WA-01), John B. Larson (CT-01), and Dan Kildee (MI-05). The Senate companion bill was introduced by Senators Mike Lee (UT), Todd Young (IN), Mike Braun, and Bob Menendez (NJ).

“The passage of this legislation today is a huge win for families and will be a powerful tool in addressing the ongoing baby formula shortage. This measure, combined with the Formula Act that Congress approved in July, will help get more safe, affordable formula on store shelves and increase domestic production capacity,” said the House leads Ferguson, DelBene, Blumenauer, Smith, Larson, and Kildee. “We thank our colleagues in the House and Senate for their overwhelming bipartisan support on this measure. This shows how we can put families first and show Americans governance can work for them.”
