HB 594 - Montana Country-of-Origin Labeling Act

Sponsored by Rep. Bradley Hamlett, D-Cascade

This House version of the Montana Country-of-Origin Labeling (COOL) Act would give our ranchers and farmers a fair shake and give Montana consumers the information they want. The bill would require that placards be placed in meat counters to inform consumers about where the meat was born, raised, harvested, and processed.

HB 594 was heard in the House Agriculture Committee on February 26 and was tabled with a 9-8 vote.
