Senator Ted Budd (R-NC) has co-sponsored SB 1782, the FORMULA 3.0 Act.
The bill would permanently waive tariffs and ease trade barriers on infant formula, ensuring a stable and accessible supply for families across the United States. This would allow domestic manufacturers to be able to increase their production, further easing the formula crisis in the United States. The bill was originally introduced by Senator Mike Lee (R-UT). Sen. Budd said in a statement: “Baby formula shortages have impacted families across North Carolina. I’m proud to support Senator Lee’s bill to loosen barriers and restrictions so that U.S. suppliers can produce the formula that families need.”
