Reynolds Signs Meat Integrity Bill

Governor Kim Reynolds has signed legislation that creates new labeling requirements for meat and egg alternatives. Starting July 1st, any plant-based, lab grown or insect-based protein product sold in Iowa stores will have to be clearly labeled as something other than meat or eggs. Senator Dawn Driscoll, a Republican from Williamsburg who raises cattle, calls it a “meat integrity” law. Reynolds signed a second bill into law during her stop at a farm near Ladora. It extends a capital gains tax break on state income taxes for the sale of bulls, boars, rams and other livestock used for breeding.
