Pork farmers argue that CA law controlling housing of livestock hogs violates dormant commerce clause, which bars state laws that hinder interstate commerce. Case was heard on October 11.
The pork producers’ central argument is that the state law will effectively require producers in other states to follow California’s hog-housing requirements. Controlling their conduct — out-of-state producers say — violates the dormant commerce clause, which bars state laws that hinder interstate commerce.
