Iowa Pork Producers Back King Farm Bill Amendment

The Humane Society of the United States along with several activist groups are working to try to get Congress to strip out an amendment from the farm bill put in by Iowa Congressman Steve King. The measure prohibits states from enacting laws that place conditions on the means of production of agricultural goods that are sold within its borders but are produced in other states. Iowa Pork Producers President Greg Lear says the amendment needs to remain intact to protect producers and interstate commerce.

Lear says there are several unintended consequences that will hurt many sectors if the amendment is thrown out.

Lear is also hoping that Congressman Steve King will be named one of the House Farm Bill conferees as he’s been a good friend of the pork industry and agriculture as a whole.
