US Senator Gillibrand thanks President Biden for invoking Defense Production Act to address baby formula shortage
US Senator Kirsten Gillibrand is praising President Joe Biden taking her proposal to invoke the Defense Production Act to address the baby formula shortage in the US. In a statement she says the US will now begin to ramp-up domestic production and that should help any issues of hoarding or price gouging. In the meantime, baby formula will also be shipped to the US from other countries. Gillibrand introduced bicameral legislation known as the Emergency Infant Formula Act.
