Feenstra Issues Statement on Supreme Court Decision to Uphold California’s Prop 12

Today, U.S. Rep. Randy Feenstra (R-Hull) issued the following statement after the U.S. Supreme Court upheld California’s Proposition 12, which is devastating for Iowa hog farmers, egg producers, and rural communities.

“I’m outraged that the Supreme Court upheld California’s assault on Iowa hog farmers and egg producers. Prop 12 represents red tape at its worst, raising costs for our producers and prices for our families while inflation wreaks havoc on our communities and destroys our economy. Quite frankly, California liberals have no jurisdiction over how Iowa farmers raise our hens and hogs.

On top of President Biden’s radical WOTUS rule and his tax hikes on our producers, this decision is just another attack on rural America. As the top pork-producing and egg-producing district in the nation, I will continue to work with my colleagues to repeal Prop 12 and support our producers.”
