EATS Act now faces opposition in the Senate

A bill that would block California’s Proposition 12 is facing more pushback in Congress.

A bipartisan group of senators have sent a letter to Ag Committee leadership saying the Ending Agriculture Trade Suppression (EATS) Act would hurt small farmers and infringe on states’ rights.

Congresswoman Ashley Hinson sponsors the bill and tells Brownfield the Senators’ claims are not factual. “I think if you read the substance of that letter it’s based on a lot of myths coming out about the EATS Act,” she said.
