GOVERNMENT REQUESTS STAY IN BEEF CHECKOFF CASE
Debra Davis
(334) 613-4686
July 09, 2002

WASHINGTON, D.C., - The U.S. Department of Justice, on behalf of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, today filed a request with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 8th Circuit asking that court to stay the decision issued by the U.S. District Court in South Dakota that the Beef Promotion and Research Act is unconstitutional.

The June 21, 2002, decision directed that the collection of assessments cease on July 15. The request for stay, if granted, will allow the Beef Promotion and Research Program to continue without interruption while the Department of Agriculture and the Department of Justice pursue an appeal in the 8th Circuit.
