The U.S. Supreme Court will hear a challenge to California's Proposition 12. The case was filed by the National Pork Producers Council and American Farm Bureau Federation.

“It’s a very exciting decision, it means the Supreme Court is interested in reviewing whether or not what California has done here is constitutional," said AFBF Senior Legal Counsel for Public Policy. "That’s an incredibly high bar to reach, the Supreme Court takes less than one percent of cases a year that come before it, which means that there are a ton of cases that are very deserving but never had the opportunity. But here, the Supreme Court, at least views that we have reached that bar to decide this important issue.”
