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
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.
