Iowa AG Supports Injunction of California Glyphosate Labeling
The Agribusiness Association of Iowa joined a lawsuit against California last fall as part of a coalition of agricultural groups. California's Prop 65 would require glyphosate to be labeled as a probable carcinogen. The regulatory bodies of the US, EU, Canada, and most other regulatory entities worldwide have found glyphosate to be safe.
This week, Iowa Attorney General Tom Miller joined AGs from 10 other states in filing an amicus brief in support of a preliminary injunction of the labeling requirement. The injunction was requested by the coalition filing the lawsuit.
AAI members can learn more about the Prop 65 lawsuit, how the Prop 65 requirement would affect their business, and the association's involvement at the AAI Annual Meeting during the Agribusiness Showcase and Conference on February 13, 2018.
Catherine Hannaway with legal firm Husch Blackwell will be at the meeting to provide background on the lawsuit and an update on the legal progress.
