07/15/2010 - Former Illinois Sen. Carol Moseley Braun (D-Ill.), who also was a former ambassador to New Zealand and Samora, returned to Capitol Hill this week to highlight a bill banning antibiotics being given to animals we eat who are not sick.
Moseley Braun is the founder and president of Ambassador Organics, based in Chicago.
In Washington on Tuesday, Moseley Braun was volunteering her time on behalf of the PEW Charitable Trusts in support of legislation called "the Preservation of Antibiotics for Medical Treatment Act (PAMTA)" originally introduced by the late Sen. Ted Kennedy (D-Mass.) and now sponsored by Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) and on the House side, Rep. Louis Slaughter (D-N.Y.) The measure "seeks to phase out the nontherapeutic use of certain antimicrobial drugs in livestock and poultry."
