The Biden administration is asking the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn a lower court’s decision that allowed California’s Proposition 12 law to move forward.
The White House, international trading partners, and business groups filed amicus briefs in support of the National Pork Producers Council ahead of the Supreme Court case to review California’s Prop 12.
The Supreme Court is scheduled to hear oral arguments on Oct. 11, 2022.
The Pig Site says the state law bans the sale of pork from pigs that do not meet the state’s production standards.
It applies to any uncooked pork sold in the state, whether produced there or elsewhere.
