The revamped Farm Bill, including the highly controversial King Amendment, was recently approved by the House. House-Senate negotiators are now working to finalize the Farm Bill.
Please take a moment to call your U.S. Representatives and Senators today to ask them to remove the King Amendment from the 2013 Farm Bill. You can tell them: “As one of your constituents and a supporter of In Defense of Animals, I am calling to inform you that I oppose the King Amendment to the 2013 Farm Bill. The King Amendment claims to protect interstate commerce, but in reality it is designed to undermine animal welfare laws enacted by individual states.”
According to the 10th Amendment to the Constitution, states should be able to ban the sale of agricultural products if they are not produced in a manner approved by that state. Please help us defeat the dangerous and unconstitutional King Amendment to the 2013 Farm Bill.
