Iowa pork producer looks to farm bill for Prop 12 fix

An Iowa pork producer is hopeful a solution for California’s Proposition 12 is coming in the next farm bill.

Trish Cook of Winthrop is a past president of the Iowa Pork Producers Association and says she’s hearing the House is making progress.

“GT Thompson, the chair of the House Ag Committee, is also committed to getting some wording in there as a fix for Prop 12 about the restrictions that Prop 12 is putting on interstate commerce. So that’s really important to hear and important to know that he’s committed to getting that in there.”

Cook tells Brownfield she’s less certain about how Senate farm bill negotiators will handle Prop 12.
