Mr. DORGAN. I wanted to say it is so rare for us to have a bipartisan amendment. Those of us who have worked on this, including Senator Grassley and Senator McCain and many on my side, will be faced once again with the charge that this would undermine safety and so on. I wanted to make the point that Senator Grassley was one of those who especially worked with us--and Senator McCain--to make sure we had safety in this legislation, pedigrees, batch lots, safety

that does not exist now even in domestic supply, let alone imported drugs.

I appreciate the Senator from Iowa working with us on this legislation. This is a good piece of legislation. I look forward to seeing the Senator from Iowa on the floor when we get it to the floor to have that debate.
