Modesto Bee Opinion
by Bill Mattos, President California Poultry Federaion
It’s no secret that California isn’t the easiest place to operate a business. However, very few laws have the power to single-handedly threaten poultry and other food processing operations. Yet that’s exactly what we were facing due to a law passed last year that requires California to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions dramatically by 2030. Poultry companies were facing one of the biggest threats in our history that could have decimated us and the Central Valley’s entire agriculture industry.
