NFU Backing Cool In The Courts And On Capital Hill

NFU Backing Cool In The Courts And On Capital Hill

Groups embroiled in the court fight over Country of Origin Labeling are awaiting a Judge’s decision that could come as early as today.  The U.S. and Canadian meat processing groups fighting the rule want the injunction granted so COOL will be stopped in its tracks.  National Farmers Union has 300 of its members in the nation’s capital talking about the importance of COOL. Vice President of Government Relations Chandler Goule says however the Judge rules the issue won’t be settled quickly.

Goule says he feels COOL defenders presented a good case to the court and thinks they’ll eventually prevail.

He says while the Judge’s ruling could come as early as today, there’s a  possibility it could take longer.
