Iowa Rep. Steve King is a darling of the tea party who claims to support states’ rights and local governance. So it’s curious that his most recent and high-profile legislative effort is focused on consolidating power in the federal government to a degree that would make members of the Politburo proud.

The King amendment, which is a part of the House version of the farm bill, dictates that “the government of a state or locality therein shall not impose a standard or condition on the production or manufacture of any agricultural product sold or offered for sale in interstate commerce if (1) such production or manufacture occurs in another state; and (2) the standard or condition is in addition to the standards and conditions applicable to such production or manufacture pursuant to (A) federal law; and (B) the laws of the state and locality in which such production or manufacture occurs.”
