"The Senate Appropriations Committee also adopted amendments to the legislation Thursday that would extend a waiver from the whole-grains requirements for school meals and force USDA to delay the end of an import ban on beef from Brazil and Argentina," Brasher writes. "Both the whole-grains waiver and the beef-import measure are also contained in the House version of the fiscal 2016 spending measure. The extension of the ban on horse slaughter and biotech salmon labeling requirement are not in the House bill. The Senate committee approved both provisions without a roll-call vote."
Last year the House included a ban on horse slaughter and Congress passed it. This month a motion in the Appropriations Committee to extend the ban failed on a 24-24 vote.
