Thu, 26 Aug 2010 7:12:23 CDT

Oklahoma Senator Coburn and Several Colleagues Question USDA Objectivity in Promoting Livestock Competition Workshops A letter sent by several Senators to USDA Secretary Tom Vilsack on August 25 questions the objectivity of the USDA over the GIPSA marketing rule for livestock as well as the competition workshop planned for tomorrow by the USDA and DOJ.


In the letter, Senator Pat Roberts, Sam Brownback, Mike Johanns, Saxby Chambliss and Tom Coburn tell the Secretary "Even though you assured us that the workshops would be organized and conducted as open and balanced forums to provide an opportunity for diverse viewpoints to be heard, recent press accounts of an email sent by a USDA official concerning the upcoming competition workshop in Fort Collins would suggest otherwise. A USDA Employee in a Colorado field office used his official government email account to pass along a message from an interest group soliciting attendance at the workshop."
