Nebraska Pork Producers Want King Amendment In Farm Bill

Nebraska Pork Producer’s President Shane Meyer says the King amendment needs to remain in the final farm bill package. Earlier the House passed the provision in their farm bill that would stop state’s from barring goods made in other states based on the means of production. He says the measure has to do with interstate commerce and the freedom of producers to choose their production methods.

Meyer says it’s a tough battle to win Congressional approval when HSUS has mounted a campaign to do away with the provision based on large sums of money. He says they’ll still keep pushing conferees to keep the measure in the farm bill.

He says hopefully the public will listen to those who are out there working with the animals and not to those trying to line their pockets and have big salaries.
