Cheney wants expanded beef markets

Wyoming’s US Representative and House Republican Conference Chair Liz Cheney is calling for rapid action on a bill she introduced entitled the “Expanding Markets for State-Inspected Meat Processors Act of 2021.” Cheney says the economic ramifications of COVID-19 resulted in processing interruptions and decreases in the amount of meat getting to markets, which she says had led to shortages across the country.

Cheney says, “As we recover from the challenges posed by the pandemic, we must be doing everything possible to expand opportunities and open markets that will allow livestock producers to increase their economic activity.” Cheney points out that these producers play an essential role in powering Wyoming’s economy and providing high-quality food to consumers across the country.

Allowing state-inspected meats to be sold across state lines empowers producers to access these new markets while supplying the increasing demand. Cheney adds that this legislation will also increase competition and offer more meat choices for American families.
