OkPork Applauds Attorney General, Joining others to Challenge California Proposition 12

Tue, 10 Mar 2020 14:48:41 CDT

OkPork Applauds Attorney General, Joining others to Challenge California Proposition 12 Earlier today, Attorney General Mike Hunter issued a statement in support of the National Pork Producers Council and the American Farm Bureau Federation in their lawsuit against the state of California’s Proposition 12 rule that burdens every farmer, rancher and consumer of U.S. agricultural products.

Roy Lee Lindsey, Oklahoma Pork Council Executive Director said, “Oklahoma’s hog farmers would like to thank Attorney General Mike Hunter for his support of our industry through participation in a brief supporting the National Pork Producers Council and the American Farm Bureau Federation in their lawsuit against the State of California’s Proposition 12 rule that burdens every farmer, rancher and consumer of U.S. agricultural products.

As Attorney General Hunter said in his statement “The Constitution does not allow California to mandate nationwide policy on how to raise livestock. For farmers and ranchers to comply would be a major financial burden for Oklahoma producers that would translate into significantly higher prices at the grocery store.”

This is the latest example of Attorney General Hunter standing up for the hard work of Oklahoma’s hog farmers against laws in other states that would have a negative impact in Oklahoma. We appreciate the leadership Attorney General Hunter has shown and continues to show on these issues.” – Roy Lee Lindsey, Jr. Oklahoma Pork Council Executive Director
