June 25, 1997
Ms. Lorraine Miller, Director
Dear Ms. Miller:
I have been contacted by Ms. Mary Lamare regarding the FTC's rule on labeling.
Please investigate the enclosed information sent to me and provide me with a report. Please give the views and concerns of Ms. Lamare every appropriate consideration within federal guidelines. Your reply may be forwarded to the attention of Alice Peterson.
Thank you for your attention and assistance.
Dear Senator Breaux,
U. S. working men and women consumers need your help The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) says Made in U. S. A. " in advertisments and on product labels should no longer have to mean what it says.
Currently, for the most part consumers can be confident that "Made in U. S. A." means "all or virtually all "domestic parts and labor, as you know.
To permit less than "all or virtually all" would be to perpetratea fraud on the American public and open even wider the door to U. S. jobs being moved overseas.
The FTC must be called to task by you and the other members of Congress.
