The Supreme Court made a couple significant rulings dealing with agriculture this year. One was the Sackett case dealing with wetlands and Waters of the United States. The other big case was the Proposition 12 decision. Washburn Professor of Agricultural Law and Taxation, Roger McEowen says the High Court is expected to hear a case involving the deference issue next year. “I really think for agriculture, the big deal at the Supreme Court level has to do with regulatory agencies. This court, and I think this is a good thing from ag standpoint, is really paring back the power that administrative agencies have and the deference that we give to administrative agencies. They’re throwing more of the policy work back on Congress where it should be.” McEowen will be featured on the Red River Farm Network stage Tuesday at the Big Iron Farm Show. McEowen will be able to answer questions dealing with agricultural law and taxes.
