The National Cattlemen’s Beef Association and its affiliated state groups are urging Congress to swiftly ratify the USMCA. They’ve sent a letter to congressional leaders saying for the beef industry, it’s very difficult to improve on zero tariffs, zero quotas, and science-based standards and the USMCA updates NAFTA to achieve those goals.
They also urge Congress to oppose any efforts to re-instate mandatory Country of Origin Labeling which they call a failed policy.
