The Cubin/Herseth Resolution (HJR 23) - Block USDA’s efforts to reopen the Canadian border
 
 
 
April 8, 2005
 

All:
 
On March 3, 2005, the U.S. Senate voted 52-46 in favor of overturning USDA’s Final Rule to reopen the Canadian border.
 
The Canadian border -- set to reopen to Canadian beef on March 7th -- remained closed.
 
Your efforts are to be commended for helping make that happen.
 
The measure now goes to the U.S. House of Representatives. 
 
Your efforts are needed once again.
 
Please contact your representatives and request they co-sponsor -- and then support -- the Cubin/Herseth Resolution (HJR 23), which would block USDA’s efforts to reopen the Canadian border.
 
Call toll-free: 877-762-8762 or 202-224-2131 as ask to speak to your representative's office.
 
Thank you in advance for helping by adding your voice to this vital Resolution!
