Abstract

The United States Supreme Court, in a six to three decision, on June 25 created a different playing field for commodity check-off programs. The decision promises to be the center of the debate over mandatory check-off programs for several years. In the case before the court, United States v. United Foods, Inc., the court said that the mandatory mushroom check-off violates the First Amendment free speech rights of mushroom producers.
