RMBA Statement: Artificial Meat Labeling

On behalf of the 120 members of the Rocky Mountain Bison Association (RMBA), the RMBA Board of Directors issued the included resolution concerning artificial meat labeling, United States Senate Bill 3016, United States House of Representatives Bill 4881, and State of Colorado House of Representatives Bill 20-1117.

RMBA represents the bison ranchers, producers, and marketers located in Colorado, Wyoming, New Mexico, and Utah. RMBA’s mission is to promote and preserve bison through education, research, and marketing.

We thank U.S. Representatives Roger Marshall, M.D. (R-KS) and Anthony Brindisi (D-NY), as well as U.S. Senator Deb Fischer (R-NE) for introducing these federal bills (The Real Marketing Edible Artificials Truthfully (MEAT) Act). We also thank CO. State Representatives Edie Hooton (D-10) and Patrick Neville (R-45) for introducing the Colorado bill concerning artificial meat labeling (Misbranding Nonmeat And Imported And Artificial Meat), as we support the portion of this bill related to artificial meat labeling. We support these bills and encourage all U.S. Representatives and Senators to support these federal bills, as well as encourage all State of Colorado legislators to support the Colorado bill.

Contact your elected officials today and encourage them to support these bills as well.


John Graves, RMBA President
