For those that didn't see it on C - SPAN, I've pulled Rep. Nita Lowey's (the original House bill sponsor) remarks on the House floor from last night, just before the vote.

--------------
Mrs. LOWEY. Mr. Speaker, I yield myself such time as I may consume. I rise in support of S. 741, the Minor Use and Minor Species Animal Health Act of 2004. The bill, known as MUMS, will make an important contribution to animal health. This legislation is very similar to H.R. 2079 sponsored by the gentleman from Louisiana (Mr. JOHN) and the gentleman from Mississippi (Mr. PICKERING); and although we are taking up the Senate bill, they, along with my colleague, the gentleman from Ohio (Mr. BROWN), deserve credit for leadership on this issue. The bill is supported by the MUMS Coalition and the Keep Antibiotics Working Coalition. The MUMS coalition includes the American Farm Bureau Federation, the American Veterinary Medical Association, the Animal Health Institute, the National Fisheries Institute, and many other organizations. The Keep Antibiotics Working Coalition includes the Union of Concerned Scientists, Environmental Defense, and the Center For Science in the Public Interest. In sum, the proverbial delicate balance has been found.
Mr. Speaker, I am also greatly pleased that MUMS includes the Food Allergen Labeling and Consumer Protection Act, Title II of S. 741. I authored the food allergy bill 4 years ago; and since the bill

THANK YOU SOOOOOOOO MUCH to those of you who contributed to this bill's passing!!!

Hmmm...I've not heard that it's been signed yet.
Last official action I'm aware of is that the bill was presented to the White House on 7/23, so it could be true, but then again, I thought that Bush left for Texas.
Two ways this bill can become law...Bush can sign it, or just let the 10 day period lapse, and the bill becomes law without his signature...
