The chairman of the House Agriculture Committee says he’s excited to include language in the new farm bill that addresses interstate commerce.

Glenn “GT” Thompson tells Brownfield the Proposition 12 law that went into effect earlier this year has driven up the cost of meat for consumers, flooded the hog market and “we need a fix there.”

Thompson says it’s not written like the Ending Agricultural Trade Suppression or EATS Act, but the language addressing interstate commerce will address concerns.
