[Congressional Bills 107th Congress] [From the U.S. Government Printing Office] [H. Res. 230 Introduced in House (IH)] 107th CONGRESS 1st Session H. RES. 230 Expressing the sense of the House of Representatives that Article I, section 10 of the United States Constitution should not be used to renew the interstate economic protectionism of our Nation's early history. _______________________________________________________________________ IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES August 2, 2001 Mr. Sessions (for himself, Mr. Hayworth, Mr. Flake, Mr. Shadegg, Mr. Kolbe, Mr. Royce, Mr. Tancredo, Mr. Miller of Florida, Mr. Nussle, Mr. Manzullo, Mr. Hyde, Mr. Johnson of Illinois, Mrs. Biggert, Mr. Hostettler, Mr. Gutknecht, Mr. Thune, Mr. Paul, Mr. Bonilla, Mr. Green of Wisconsin, Mr. Stump, Mr. Radanovich, Mr. Simpson, Mr. Otter, Mr. Weller, Mr. Souder, Mr. Boehner, Mr. Petri, Mr. Sensenbrenner, Mr. Ryan of Wisconsin, Mr. Kennedy of Minnesota, Mr. Culberson, Mr. Issa, Mr. Latham, Mr. Leach, Mr. Ganske, Mr. Shimkus, Mr. Crane, Mr. Skeen, Mr. Rohrabacher, Mr. Dooley of California, Mr. Rush, Mr. Davis of Illinois, Mr. Costello, Mr. Jackson of Illinois, Mr. Stupak, Mr. Oberstar, Mr. Sabo, Mr. Traficant, Ms. Baldwin, Mr. Barrett of Wisconsin, Mr. Kind, Mr. Obey, Mr. Kleczka, and Mr. Phelps) submitted the following resolution; which was referred to the Committee on the Judiciary _______________________________________________________________________ RESOLUTION Expressing the sense of the House of Representatives that Article I, section 10 of the United States Constitution should not be used to renew the interstate economic protectionism of our Nation's early history. Whereas in consenting to the Northeast Interstate Dairy Compact in 1997, Congress undermined the fundamental Constitutional principle of one nationwide market free from interstate barriers; Whereas recent use of Article I, section 10 of the United States Constitution with regard to national dairy policy has renewed the interstate economic protectionism of our Nation's early history; Whereas fashioning a national dairy policy supporting United States dairy producers without promoting interstate regionalism is in the National interest; Whereas the Northeast Interstate Dairy Compact has cost consumers in New England more than $140,000,000 in higher milk prices, harming those who can least afford it; Whereas if compacts were to be expanded to the mid-Atlantic, South, intermountain and Pacific Northwest regions, consumers would pay more than $2,000,000,000 in higher milk prices; Whereas according to a 1999 University of Missouri study, dairy producers outside of existing and proposed compact regions stand to lose between 16 and 21 cents per hundredweight of milk; Whereas the Northeast Interstate Dairy Compact promotes the overproduction of Class I milk; and Whereas the Northeast Interstate Dairy Compact is the only congressionally authorized interstate compact providing economic protectionism: Now, therefore, be it Resolved, That the Northeast Interstate Dairy Compact should be allowed to expire under its own terms on September 30, 2001. <all>
