California Lawmakers Introduce Bill to Require Testing All Cattle for Mad Cow

SACRAMENTO - California would become the only state in the nation that tests every head of cattle for mad cow disease under a bill offered Thursday by a pair of Democratic state senators. State Sen. Michael Machado, D-Linden, said Californians could have a certified-safe beef supply for just pennies a pound extra under a bill he has co-authored with Sen. Jackie Speier, D-San Diego.
