Feenstra concerned Roundup ruling could be tip of iceberg
A Republican Congressman fears a court of appeals decision over a popular herbicide could have far-reaching consequences.
Randy Feenstra of Iowa tells Brownfield if the Supreme Court decides not to hear Bayer’s bid to dismiss claims Roundup causes cancer, it could be the tip of the iceberg for crop protection tools.
“Even with the producers of the product, you have one that is not available, or you create a lot more issues with lawsuits and things like that. So it’s real concerning how this is going to play out.”
He says farmer access to Roundup is critical.
“Most of our farmers use something, whether it’s Roundup or something similar to it. This is our way of life and how we’ve done things over the past 10 to 15 years.”
The Biden administration has come under fire from Republicans who question why the Solicitor General said in a court filing that Bayer’s appeal should be rejected.
