A bill that’s been introduced into Congress would prevent states from regulating interstate trade and agricultural practices.  

Kansas Corn CEO Josh Roe says while the bill was introduced in response to California’s Prop 12 law, it could have ripple effects beyond the pork industry. “If another state wanted to regulate corn or corn products based on genetics,  seed technology or crop health technology that we’re using, it could have a very drastic impact.”

The Ending Agricultural Trade Suppression (EATS) Act would preserve the rights of states and local units of government to regulate agriculture within their jurisdiction, free from outside regulation.
