NATIONAL FOOD POLICY

SCORECARD

2015 PROGRESS REPORT

FOODPOLICYACTION.ORG


Food Policy Action was established in 2012 through a

collaboration of national food policy leaders interested in

holding legislators accountable for their votes that impact

the food system.

FPA’s mission is to highlight the importance of food policy

and to promote policies that support healthy diets, reduce

hunger at home and abroad, improve food access and

affordability, uphold the rights and dignity of food and

farm workers, increase transparency, improve public

health, reduce the risk of food-borne illness, support

local and regional food systems, protect and maintain

sustainable fisheries, treat farm animals humanely and

reduce the environmental impact of farming and food

production. Food Policy Action promotes positive policies

through public education and publication of the National

Food Policy Scorecard.

Our goal is to change the national dialogue on food policy

by informing the public on how elected officials vote on

these issues.

HOW VOTES ARE SCORED

The National Food Policy Scorecard is your go-to source for

information about the most important food system-related

legislation considered by the House and the Senate.

The scorecard reflects the consensus of top food policy

experts who select the key food policy votes and bills

each year, on issues including domestic and international

hunger, food safety, food access, farm subsidies, animal

welfare, food and farm labor, nutrition, food additives,

food transparency, local and regional food production,

organic farming, and the effects of food production on the

environment. Legislators’ scores reflect their votes and

co-sponsorships on these bills. The National Food Policy

Scorecard lets you identify which legislators are working

for sensible food policies.

WELCOME

TO THE NATIONAL FOOD POLICY

SCORECARD: 2015 PROGRESS REPORT

Since 2012, Food Policy Action has been educating the public with

factual, non-partisan information on how their elected officials

vote on a full range of food policy issues. The National Food Policy

Scorecard: 2015 Progress Report reflects your legislators’ support

for sensible food policies in the first year of the 114th Congress.

This report is an opportunity for the public to call on legislators to

improve their scores by supporting policies that work towards a

healthier, fairer food system.

The National Food Policy Scorecard: 2015 Progress Report covers

votes Congress took up in 2015 that would impact the food system

– for better and for worse. The House passed H.R. 1599, also known

as the Deny Americans the Right to Know (DARK) Act, granting

USDA the sole authority to establish a voluntary fee-based

program for labeling non-GMO foods, pre-empting state and FDA

authority and overriding the public’s vocal desire to know what is in

their food. Congress made mixed progress on sustainable fisheries

in 2015, as the House voted to re-authorize the Magnuson-

Stevens fisheries management bill with relaxed provisions for

environmental assessments, but also worked on legislation for

more stringent enforcement of illegal fishing prohibitions.

2015 was a year for Congress to pass legislation guaranteeing

healthy meals in school. Unfortunately, Congress has failed to

pass a comprehensive update to the legislation that provides

meals in schools for more than 30 million children each school

year. This report includes proposed bills that would preserve

and expand school meals, as well as some that seek to erode

progress on nutrition standards and access. In the coming

year, we hope to see a Child Nutrition Reauthorization bill that

recognizes the crucial role of these programs, and preserves the

funding and the improvements to nutrition standards created in

the 2010 legislation.

It is more important than ever to have clear information about

federal policies that shape the food we eat every day, and Food

Policy Action will continue to arm the public with important

information about votes and legislation that impact the food

system in 2016.

FAIRNESS IN THE FOOD SYSTEM

In 2015, Congress has neglected to take up important issues regarding the fairness of our food system. The food system

includes not just consumers, but food chain workers, farm workers, and their families. At a time when five of the eight

worst-paying jobs in our country are in the food industry, issues of wage and workplace protections have an important role

in making the food system fairer and healthier.

FEDERAL MINIMUM WAGE

The minimum wage sets the standard for millions of

food chain workers across the country. As the federal

minimum wage has failed to keep pace with the costs

of living, those who feed us often struggle to feed

themselves and their families. Proposals to raise the

federal minimum wage would allow working adults in

the food industry to make ends meet.

Sanders Minimum Wage Budget Amendment

(S. Amdt. 881): This amendment to the annual budget

resolution would have expressed a general call for a

substantial increase in the Federal Minimum Wage.

Date of Vote: 3/26/2015

Session: First Session

Bill Number: S. Con. Res. 11

Pay Workers A Living Wage Act:

These proposed bills would provide for an increase in the

Federal Minimum Wage to $15.00 per hour by 2020, and

lays out a formula for a yearly increase after that to keep

pace with inflation.

Senate Bill: S. 1832

House Bill: H.R. 3164

Roll Call: Senate No. 93

Good Food Vote: Yea

Failed: 48-52

Sponsored By: Sen. Bernard Sanders

Sponsored By: Rep. Keith Ellison

HEALTHY FAMILIES

Nearly 40 percent of private sector workers do not have

any paid sick leave. That number jumps to 80 percent

among the lowest-wage workers, many of whom work in

the food system. Proposals to allow employees to accrue

time to care for ill family members or recover from their

own illness would improve not only the safety of our food

supply, but strengthen the food system workforce as a

whole by improving productivity and employee retention.

Murray Sick Leave Budget Amendment (S. Amdt. 798):

This amendment to the annual budget resolution would

have called for legislation to require employers to allow

workers to earn paid sick time.

Date of Vote: 3/26/2015

Session: First Session

Bill Number: S. Con. Res. 11

Roll Call: Senate No. 98

Good Food Vote: Yea

Passed: 61-39

Healthy Families Act:

These bills would set a national minimum standard for

paid sick days. Businesses with 15 or more employees

would be required to allow employees to earn up to seven

paid sick days each year, while smaller businesses would

have to allow their employees to earn job-protected,

unpaid leave.
