CCM joined the California Farm Bureau, the Cotton Ginners and Growers Association, Western Agricultural Processors Association, and the California Fresh Fruit Association in filing an amicus brief in the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals. The amicus is in support of plaintiffs, National Association of Wheat Growers, et al. v. Rob Bonta, Attorney General of California. The lawsuit cites the lack of scientific evidence to support California’s claim that glyphosate causes cancer and its listing as a Proposition 65 chemical. CCM and the ag coalition seek to overturn the Prop 65 listing and bring back thorough scientific rigor in future decision-making. The amicus was filed on Wednesday.
