(NOVEMBER 5, 2021) – A letter seeking signatures from a wide-range of organizations supporting the recently introduced the American Beef Labeling Act of 2021 (S.2716) is now being circulated among organizations representing farm, ranch, rural, faith, environmental, farm/food worker, manufacturing, and cattle/farm industry support businesses.
USCA is among the participating groups circulating the letter in an effort to secure swift passage of the bill.
Senate Bill 2716 would reinstate mandatory country-of-origin labeling (M-COOL) for beef within 12 months of enactment. The bill was introduced on September 13 and is gaining bipartisan support in the U.S. Senate. Senators John Thune (R-S.D.), Jon Tester (D-Mont.), Mike Rounds (R-S.D.) and Cory Booker (D-N.J.) are the bill’s original cosponsors and Senators John Hoeven (R-N.Dak.) and Ben Ray Luján (D-N.Mex.) joined as cosponsors last week.
Please forward this request along to all the county, local, state, and national organizations that you belong to! Farm/ ranch, rural, faith, environmental, farm/food worker, manufacturing, and cattle/farm industry support businesses can click below to sign. Please no individual signatures at this time.
