Group of Democratic lawmakers face off against NPPC over Prop-12

A group of Democratic Senators is looking for support from the Solicitor General in the Supreme Court case over Prop-12 in California.

The group is hoping to get the court not to side with the National Pork Producers Council. The NPPC says that the state law is unconstitutional; it bans the sale of pork from hogs that were not raised according to California production standards. They argue that violates the constitution’s commerce clause.

In a letter, the Senators said, “If adopted, this ruling could allow large, multi-state corporations to evade numerous state laws that focus on harms to their constituents, including those addressing wildlife trafficking, climate change, renewable energy, stolen property trafficking, and labor abuses.”
