Gov. Ricketts Responds To New Green Deal's Impact On Cattle Production

Today, Governor Pete Ricketts issued a statement following news that New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez had proposed a “Green New Deal” that would abolish cattle production.

“As the Governor of the Beef State, this announcement is shockingly ignorant. Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez’s plan to end cattle production would kill our state’s number one industry, and destroy countless middle class jobs and family businesses. I urge congressional leaders to kill this resolution swiftly and decisively to send a message to anti-agriculture socialists that we will fight for our way of life.”
