WASHINGTON – U.S. Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) issued the following statement after the U.S. House of Representatives passed legislation Wednesday night to repeal Country of Origin Labeling (COOL) regulations, unnecessary and costly food labeling mandates that bring the United States out of compliance with international trade obligations:

“The last thing Texas farmers, ranchers, and manufacturers need are onerous, unfair regulations that hamstring their ability to compete in the global market. The COOL regulations for beef, pork, and chicken need to go, and I applaud Rep. Conaway for leading the fight in the House.” 

U.S. Rep. Mike Conaway (R-TX-11) is the author of HR 2393, the Country of Origin Labeling Amendments Act, which passed on a 300-131 vote.
