MONTANA - By a 40-10 vote, the Montana Senate has tentatively endorsed a statewide requirement that all meat and other food products sold in the state contain information about where the products were produced. The country-of-origin law, which has already passed the Montana House, would take effect on Oct. 1, 2006. Opponents said that the bill will attract a suit from the Federal government, since it conflicts with present Federal standards. <i>Source: MeatingPlace</i>
