URGENT CALL TO ACTION
This may be the most important thing you ever do to protect farm animals.
Steve King is a Congressman from Iowa. He got an amendment in the Farm Bill which could nullify and prevent future state laws from protecting agricultural workers, family farmers, and the environment. As well, dozens of state animal cruelty laws are likely to be nullified including those against extreme confinement of farm animals, horse slaughter, and puppy mills.
A committee has been formed to create a final Farm Bill, where this amendment sits. Georgia’s Senator Saxby Chambliss is on this deciding committee, along with Congressmen David Scott (Jonesboro and Smyrna) and Congressman Austin Scott (Tifton).
Georgians hold the key to stopping this amendment that will turn back the clock for animal protection.
We need you to contact Senator Chambliss today. Urge him to reject the King amendment. If he is your representative, contact Congressman David Scott (Smyrna/Jonesboro)or Congressman Austin Scott (Tifton) and ask him to reject the King amendment in the Farm Bill.
Here is what you might say:
“As a Georgian concerned about the future of our farmers, farm workers, environment and animal welfare, I hope you will not support the King Amendment in the Farm Bill.”
Please forward this to your friends!
We need volunteers to protect farm animals by stopping this amendment. Please contact us today if you can help.
