Missouri Congresswoman Vicky Hartzler says Missouri’s cattle industry needs more markets and competition. The Missouri Republican has teamed with a California Democrat to introduce a bill that the two lawmakers say will fix regulatory roadblocks that hurt livestock auctions and small meat packers.
The “A-PLUS” Act would amend the Packers and Stockyards Act to allow livestock auction market owners to be more involved, as the congresswoman explained on Missourinet affiliate KDRO.
