Urge USDA to Act on New Report on the Integrity of the National Organic Program

From the Cornucopia Institute:

After an extensive audit and investigation of alleged improprieties at  the USDA’s National Organic Program, the federal Office of Inspector  General (OIG) made public their formal report, dated March 9,  echoing criticisms made by the OCA and our allies – that under the Bush administration, the USDA did an inadequate job of enforcing federal organic law.

Since 2002, when the USDA adopted the federal organic regulations, the  agency has been plagued by inadequate funding as well as a cozy relationship with large corporations that dominate organic sectors such as dairy and body care.
