Wednesday, the House Ag Committee passed a bill that would repeal the Country of Origin labeling law also known as COOL with 38 ayes to 6 nays.
COOL tells consumers from what countries their meat is from. This was ruled illegal by the World Trade Organization 2 days prior to the repeal vote by the House Ag Committee.
The NFU and a few Democratic Senators are against the repeal of COOL. Here are some their Tweets:
Thank you @RepTimWalz for standing up for U.S. family farmers, ranchers and consumers by voting no on Country-of-Origin Labeling repeal.

Should the law be changed or remain as is? Will repealing COOL hurt our trade relationships? Leave your response below.
