The Farm Bill has been finalized and the highly controversial King Amendment has been removed. The King Amendment claimed to protect interstate commerce, but in reality it was designed to undermine animal welfare laws enacted by individual states.
Thanks to letters and phone calls from dedicated animal advocates like you, our Representatives and Senators decided to reject the dangerous and unconstitutional King Amendment to the Farm Bill. This is a big win for animals!
