A U.S. Senator from Iowa says she’s continuing to push back against California’s Proposition 12 law.

Republican Joni Ernst says tells Brownfield Prop 12 will be harmful to food production and the ag economy.

“We aren’t going to be able to sell across the United States. You think about these owners and growers and how they would have to target their operations to specific states. It becomes too expensive to do and they’ll just simply choose not to send their products into those states.”

During a recent House Ag Committee hearing, Ag Secretary Tom Vilsack said the law could create chaos in the marketplace, a statement Ernst says was needed from the Biden administration.
