CCA WINS IN 2019

With your support, The California Cattlemen’s Association scored some major victories in 2019.

  • Successfully opposed SB 1, which sought to require California to meet or exceed all federal environmental regulations which were in place prior to President Trump’s term in office

  • Defeated an effort to reinstate the California Estate Tax

  • Successfully defended federal lands permittees’ rights to graze on public lands in a lawsuit brought by the Central Sierra Environmental Resource Center challenging grazing on the Stanislaus National Forrest

  • Defeated legislation that attempted to replace beef in school lunches with vegan options

  • Secured agricultural exemptions for permitting requirements under California’s Waters of the State Rule and successfully advocated for the repeal of the 2015 Waters of the U.S. (WOTUS) Rule

  • Ensured modernization of the Endangered Species Act, including reforms to critical habitat designations and the repeal of the “blanket 4(d) rule,” which extended endangered species protections to most species listed as threatened

Our work is far from complete, and we remain committed to advocating for ranching in Sacramento and Washington, DC. on the following issues, as well as others.
