HOUSE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION No. 5050

    A Concurrent Resolution urging Congress to pass legislation allowing state-inspected
       meat and meat products to be shipped interstate and to pass legislation increasing the
       number of poultry to be slaughtered at home and offered for sale to the consumer.


     
      WHEREAS,  All regulations for state inspected commercial meat
plants must be equal to or more strict than the federal regulations; and

      WHEREAS,  Since state inspected meat and meat products must be
equal to the federal regulations, meat and meat products should be al-
lowed to be shipped across state lines; and

      WHEREAS,  Currently, annually, only 1,000 poultry may be slaugh-
tered at home and offered for sale to the consumer; and

      WHEREAS,  To meet current consumer demand, such number should
be increased to 3,000 poultry: Now, therefore,

      Be it resolved by the House of Representatives of the State of Kansas,
the Senate concurring therein: That Congress pass legislation allowing
state-inspected meat and meat products to be shipped interstate; and

      Be it further resolved: That Congress pass legislation increasing the
number of poultry to be slaughtered at home from 1,000 to 3,000; and

      Be it further resolved: That the Secretary of State be directed to send
enrolled copies of this resolution to the President of the United States;
the Vice-President of the United States; Majority Leader and Minority
Leader of the United States Senate; the Speaker, Majority Leader and
Minority Leader of the United States House of Representatives; the Sec-
retary of the United States Department of Agriculture; and to each mem-
ber of the Kansas Congressional Delegation.
