concern with a recent amicus brief submitted by the U.S. Solicitor General to the Supreme Court

American Farm Bureau Federation, American Soybean Association, National Corn Growers Association,
National Association of Wheat Growers, National Cotton Council, and American Sugarbeet Growers
Association, listed in full here in the letter, called on the president to swiftly withdraw the brief. They
warned the new policy would set a dangerous precedent that threatens the science-based regulatory

invasion of Ukraine.
