Ask your State Auditor, Attorney General and Budget Committee to audit the federal beef checkoff dollars in your state. Under the federal Beef Checkoff Program, each state’s beef council keeps up to 50 cents of the $1 federally-mandated fee. In 2005, these dollars were declared government taxes rather than producer fees, yet unlike other federal funds handled by the states, they are neither audited nor appropriated. Demand your tax dollars be audited and appropriated.
Use the toolkit below to call for an audit of the federal beef checkoff dollars in your state. If you need any help, don’t hesitate to reach out to us. When you receive a response, please forward that response to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. This is a national effort, and we need your help.
