Absolute Veto of Legislation that would Criminalize Well-Established New Jersey Farmer Practices

On behalf of the National Pork Producer's Council, Porzio Governmental Affairs secured an absolute veto from the Governor regarding legislation that would criminalize well-established husbandry practices and render personal and corporate property of New Jersey farmers valueless. Despite significant legislative support, PGA was able to take a very emotional and misunderstood issue regarding the raising and care of livestock and educate key decision makers in both the Legislative and Executive Branches, providing them the information and legal authority necessary to agree with our client's position on this legislation. The result, an absolute veto of very unfavorable and potentially constitutionally flawed legislation, was directly related to PGA's ability to effectively and courageously advocate for our client's interests under a great deal of public and media scrutiny.
