Would create a Lactation Commission, require the Department of Health to establish a public breastmilk bank and lactation support center, to conduct a comprehensive public education and outreach campaign about the benefits of breastfeeding and breastmilk, and would provide the Department of Health with regulatory authority over the licensure and operation of breastmilk banks located in the District of Columbia.
Would direct the Commissioner of Food and Drugs to revise the Federal regulations applicable to the declaration of the trans fat content of a food on the label and in the labeling of the food when such content is less than 0.5 gram.
