Restrictions eased Washington a sen Phil Gramm says mexican officials have promised to ease restrictions on Texas livestock exporters possibly ending a lingering Trade dispute that had prompted the Texas Republican to threaten retaliation. At a minimum Gramm said he was assured that Mexico would rotate livestock inspections Between Texas run and private pens along the Rio Grande used by exporters. Mexican president Carlos Salinas de Gortari promised Gramm in october to a straighten out the ban on the use of 24 commercial facilities but Mexico had continued to insist inspections be limited to five Texas department of agriculture pens along the 1,000-mile Border.

Gramm had vowed monday that if Mexico wanted to be a stickler for detail a they Are going to be bigger losers than we but Tda spokesman Andy Welch contends that of the 2,700 Texas ranchers who used state pens last year to ship livestock Only two complained about the facilities a a private pen owner and a hog producer.
