COOL Resolution Hoghoused

COUNTRY OF ORIGIN LABELING
HCR 1007, COOL, will be up on the Senate floor in an hour or so. This resolution was “Hoghoused” from the original resolution of asking Congress and The Trump Administration to implement COOL, which of course we supported and was passed the House last week.   Unfortunately, The Senate Ag Committee amended the resolution to state that South Dakota supports a voluntary COOL, which SDSGA has never supported. SDSGA feels this would make South Dakota’s statement and resolution weak and therefore weaken our long hard fight on COOL. Therefore we ask the legislature to kill this resolution and would encourage you to contact your Senators on this matter.
