SCOTUS hears Prop 12 oral arguments

The Supreme Court heard oral arguments Tuesday for a case that challenges California’s Proposition 12.

Proposition 12 would make it illegal to sell pork in California unless the animal is raised in a specific manner.

Michael Formica, Chief Legal Strategist with the National Pork Producers Council, says he’s confident NPPC presented a strong case that challenged the constitutionality of Prop 12.

“If let stand, it would have a tremendous impact on the US economy and on the flow of commerce across (state) borders,” Formica said.
