11/11/2016: American Feed Industry Association statement regarding Trump's promise of a regulatory revolution

The American Feed Industry Association congratulates Donald Trump, his staff and supporters on the election victory, sealed early this morning, as well as those elected to serve in the 115th session of Congress.

AFIA President and CEO Joel G Newman provides the following post-election statement:

Joel Newman
"The result of yesterday's presidential election means much more than Republican or Democrat taking occupancy in the White House for the next four years. Based on pre-election discussions with the Trump camp, our president-elect plans to embark on a regulatory revolution come January 23. AFIA asks the president-elect to hold true to his campaign promise and make addressing strict regulatory burdens a priority of this new administration. We plan to be active in these discussions where appropriate for the animal food industry.

"AFIA--a bi-partisan organisation--has worked diligently to provide Congress, and current and former administrations, information and expertise about the animal food industry, striving for balanced regulation. Unfortunately, many of the regulations mandated recently have not been in the best interest of our industry or animal agriculture, many times inflicting excruciating costs on our members and consumers, without corresponding benefit.

"AFIA looks forward to working with the new administration and the 115th Congress to restore regulatory balance, which will maintain animal food safety at the forefront and also be practical for industry compliance."
