Less than six weeks after the U.S. Supreme Court upheld California’s landmark animal welfare law, Proposition 12, lawmakers from major farming states have banded together in an attempt to effectively gut this critical decision. On June 15, Senator Roger Marshall (R-Kansas) reintroduced the Ending Agriculture Trade Suppression Act, or EATS Act, into Congress. The EATS Act is a controversial piece of legislation designed to prevent states and local jurisdictions from regulating the production and distribution of agricultural products within their borders that are subject to interstate commerce.

If passed, the EATS Act could jeopardize Proposition 12 and hundreds of other state and local laws that regulate animal welfare, food safety and public health. Though the EATS Act has failed in the past, the backlash to Prop 12 could build momentum towards its passage. Here’s what you need to know about the EATS Act, and what it could mean for the future of animal welfare.
