In response to the recent Supreme Court ruling, which upheld California's Proposition 12 mandating housing standards for hogs processed into pork that will be sold in California, all Purdue University/CME Group Ag Economy Barometer survey respondents were asked about the likelihood Congress would overturn the proposition as part of a new farm bill. 

The results of the survey, published today, showed that producers were split in their response to this question, with 36% of respondents stating it's either somewhat or very unlikely that Congress will try to overturn the proposition and 25% stating it is at least somewhat likely Congress will take on Proposition 12 in new farm bill legislation.
