STATE OF MISSOURI SUES CALIFORNIA OVER EGG LAW
BrownfieldAgNews reports:

The Attorney General of Missouri is suing the state of California challenging that state's law prohibiting the sale of eggs from other states that are not produced under the strict production standards in California.

Missouri Farm Bureau President Blake Hurst says they are pleased this action is being taken to help protect not only Missouri egg producers who sell their products to other states but also to prevent an unfair precedent.

"Missouri has some great wineries. What's to keep us from saying that we don't want any California wine to come into Missouri because we don't like the way they make it?" Hurst asks.

"That would be good for our producers but you can see how this could escalate into a sort of trade war between states."

Hurst says the U.S. Constitution prohibits that short of trade barrier and they're just "trying to remind California of that fact."
