CENTENNIAL, Colo. — Each week, Beltway Beef brings you the latest policy news affecting the U.S. cattle and beef industry. Hear from subject-matter experts, producers, and industry leaders on the topics that impact the business viability of farms and ranches across the country.
On this episode, NCBA Chief Counsel Mary-Thomas Hart joins for an in-depth discussion on two major agricultural cases currently before the U.S. Supreme Court. The case Sackett v. EPA is considering the longstanding issue of “Waters of the United States” and the federal government’s proper jurisdiction in regulating bodies of water, while National Pork Producer’s Council v. Ross is considering the dormant commerce clause and its implications for livestock producers selling goods across state lines. NCBA has filed amicus briefs before the court in both cases to advocate for the unique needs of cattle producers.
