Government Toxic Liability
Cámara Votación Nominal 513
Tema: Sustancias Tóxicas/Derecho a la Información

Cyclamate Compensation (HR 13366). The bill permits food growers, manufacturers, and distributors to sue the federal government for losses incurred as a result of the 1969 government ban on cyclamates. The bill sets a bad precedent that could be extended to other toxic substances, making the government liable for damages every time it ordered one of them off the market. Later the same year, Congress approved similar indemnities for pesticide users and manufacturers. This inhibits federal regulation and makes production of untested, potentially dangerous substances necessarily profitable for the manufacturer and hazardous for the consumer and the environment. The Nixon Administration supported the bill. (Passed 177-170; July 24, 1972; "No" is the correct vote.)
