California Prop 12 Enforcement Halted For Now

CALIFORNIA PROP 12 ENFORCEMENT HALTED FOR NOW

State Court Halts Enforcement of Prop 12

State of California Must Finalize Rules First

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: January 25, 2022

North American Meat Institute:

WASHINGTON, DC – The North American Meat Institute (Meat Institute) today praised the ruling issued by the Superior Court for Sacramento County in California to halt enforcement of Proposition 12 (Prop 12 or the law) because the California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA) is more than two years late finalizing complicated and costly regulations.

“Judge Arguelles’ decision recognizes the complexity of the pork supply chain and the burdensome and costly provisions of Prop 12,” said President and CEO of the Meat Institute, Julie Anna Potts. “To enforce the law without final regulations leaves the industry unsure of how to comply or what significant changes must be made to provide pork to this critical market.”

The ruling delays enforcement until 180 days after the final rules go into effect.

The ruling, California Hispanic Chambers Of Commerce vs. Karen Ross, can be found HERE.

The North American Meat Institute and its members are opposed to Prop 12 and urged the State of California to delay its implementation of the law due to the risk of criminal sanctions and civil litigation for non-compliance.
