U.S. Senate Votes to Block Canada Cattle Trade

Thu March 3, 2005 1:52 PM GMT-05:00

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Senate voted on Thursday to overturn a
Bush administration plan to allow imports of Canadian cattle, the second
defeat in two days for administration efforts to normalize world beef
trade roiled by mad cow disease.

Senators passed a so-called resolution of disagreement, the first step
under a 1996 law to void a U.S. Agriculture Department regulation. The
White House said the president will veto the resolution if it also is
passed by the House.

On Wednesday, the USDA plan to reopen the border to Canadian cattle on
March 7 was thrown into uncertainty when a federal judge in Montana
issued a preliminary injunction to temporarily halt it.
