Statement Of Hon. David L. Boren, A U.S. Senator From Oklahoma
Senator Boren. The committee will come to order. Today's hearing is intended to focus on both the beef industry Long-Range Plan and proposed changes to the National Dairy Promotion and Research Board contained in Senate bill 1557 an Senate bill 1564. The subcommittee will examine how various organizations, producer members and checkoff contributors will be represented under the consolidation plan of the Beef Industry Council and the Cattlemen's Beef Board, the U.S. Meat Export Federation, and the National Cattlemen's Association.
It is my understanding that the consolidation plan is aimed at making the beef industry efforts for promoting beef and research activities more efficient by reducing overhead and duplication between the four groups who share similar interests. The net effect of the consolidation is intended to provide more money for market development, industry promotion and research, instead of overhead, salaries, and staff costs.
Because the plan proposes merging groups with separate missions, and some have missions related to lobbying and others are primarily concentrated on market development and research, the subcommittee is interested in determining how checkoff dollars will remain separate from lobbying activities as required by the Beef Promotion and Research Act of 1985.
I remember well the creation of the Beef Checkoff Program which has turned out to be one of the most successful programs of its kind in the country. This program has an exemplary record of complying with the terms of the 1985 Act.
