16 Attorneys General Call for Rejection of EATS Act and Similar Legislation

In a letter led by the Attorneys General of Michigan and Illinois, 16 Attorneys General wrote in “strong opposition to the Ending Agricultural Trade Suppression (‘EATS’) Act,” H.R. 4417 and S. 2019. Asserting that the “[EATS] Act is a severe incursion into the rights of States and local governments to regulate agricultural products sold within their jurisdictions” and that its enactment “would up-end th[e] crucial balance of federal and state authority,” the Attorneys General urged congressional leadership to “reject the EATS Act or any similar bill.”
