SCOTUS rejects states’ livestock standard cases

The Supreme Court

The Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) ruled the Environmental Protection Agency would have to act in order for year-round E15 sales to restart, and it also moved cases on California’s Proposition 12 and the Clean Water Act to conferences on Jan. 14.

On. Jan. 10, the Supreme Court denied Growth Energy’s request for a hearing for year-round E15 sales. The National Pork Producers Council’s petition against Proposition 12 was moved to the Supreme Court’s conference on Jan. 14.

The first week of January is an important one for several agriculture interests, as the Supreme Court is expected to consider whether to hear a number of high-stakes petitions that could affect farmers and ranchers.

A Clean Water Act petition filed by Michael and Chantell Sackett considering whether wetlands with a continuous surface water connection should be considered navigable waters was also moved to the Jan. 14 conference.
