Los Angeles Urban Chicken Enthusiasts Message Board › FWD:: Help Defeat the Anti-Animal King Amendment
I'm forwarding this email I receive from Animal Place... I didn't know anything about it, just got it, but it's something that I will definitely help defeat... please pass the word!!!
Want to help animals across the country? Step up and help defeat the King amendment of the Farm Bill. This dangerous amendment would undermine and overturn animal welfare and protection laws in states. It would impact important issues like farmed animal confinement and horse slaughter.
CALL YOUR LEGISLATORS
The Humane Society of the United States has a legislator look-up feature. Call and state, ""As a constituent concerned about preventing cruelty to animals, I would like you to please help to remove the King amendment from the final Farm Bill and oppose this attack on states' rights."
CALL THE HOUSE-SENATE FARM BILL CONFERENCE COMMITTEE
Ask that they remove the "King Amendment" from the final Farm Bill

Is this the same as the "Rotten Egg" bill? HSUS has teamed up with the United Egg Producers to overturn our anti-battery cage law!
