Bipartisan solution needed to address Prop 12


The head of the Michigan Pork Producers Association says federal legislation needs to consider recent state laws that dictate how livestock should be raised.

Mary Kelpinksi tells Brownfield while the EATs Act (Exposing Agricultural Trade Suppression Act) is intended to counter California’s Proposition 12 law and allow for interstate movement of ag goods, it’s a partisan effort.

“We’re hoping to work with legislators here in Michigan and across the country to come up with a bipartisan solution for the Prop 12 issue, something that would really look at the meat supply situation and make sure that we still have quality protein available,” she says.
