Senator Sasse Holds Listening Session in Valentine

Roughly 50 constituents attended the public listening session at the Valentine Livestock Auction on Friday morning for US Senator Ben Sasse. The number one topic brought up was the Country Of Origin Labeling (COOL) issue. Senator Sasse is a co-sponsor of a bill that would repeal the COOL mandate. Many area producers believe that consumers want American beef, and COOL gives consumers a means of knowing where their food comes from. However, in response to other nations' opposition to the mandate, Senator Sasse stated that he “doesn't want to start a trade war”. Some other issues that were brought up include Obamacare, government spending, the National Parks Service, and the VA's handling of veterans' healthcare.
