State beef checkoff killed
A South Dakota House committee last week rejected a plan to set up a
state beef checkoff system as a backup in case the U.S. Supreme Court
rules the national program unconstitutional.
The state’s agriculture committee voted 8-5 to kill the bill after
officials of South Dakota agricultural organizations acknowledged they
are split on the proposal.
HB1182 would have created a state checkoff system for beef if the
national system is declared unconstitutional.
