U.S. Representative Sample Letter

Below you will find a sample letter to our U.S. Represenative.  You may copy and paste if you wish, add your own comments or write your letter concerning Reining in the Meat Packers

Dear  Representative Lummis, 
I am writing to support the rule the USDA’s Grain Inspection Packers and  Stockyards Administration (GIPSA) has proposed to restore fairness in  livestock and poultry contracts.  The fair livestock marketing rule will give farmers and ranchers access  to the information they need to make better marketing decisions and will  ensure that their rights are protected. That’s good for producers, for  rural communities, and ultimately for consumers who will get better  quality and fairer prices.  Please support the fair livestock marketing rule and encourage GIPSA and  the Obama Administration to finalize and enforce the rule in a timely  manner. In addition, I urge you to oppose efforts to block funding for  the adoption and enforcement of the proposed fair livestock marketing  rule. 


Rep. Cynthia Lummis
