Nebraska Bill to Define “Meat” Withdrawn
A Nebraska state senator has withdrawn a proposed bill to define “meat” as an animal-derived product. Sen. Carol Blood submitted the bill to protect the state’s meat industry, according to the Washington Post. “All I’m asking for is truth in advertising. It’s clear that meat comes from livestock, and livestock is our livelihood in Nebraska,” Blood reportedly said. A motion to withdraw the bill was filed January 23, 2019, and Blood did not comment on the withdrawal.
