Senator Harkin (D-IA) speaking on the Senate floor about
the passage of the "Sneak Attack" rider weakening
organic standards (Nov. 2, 2005):

behind closed doors and without a single debate, the Organic
Foods Production Act was amended at the behest of large food
processors without the benefit of the organic community reaching
a compromise. To rush provisions into the law that have not
been properly vetted, that fail to close loopholes, and that
do not reflect a consensus, only undermines the integrity of
the National Organic Program."
