The revamped Farm Bill, including the highly controversial King Amendment, was recently approved by the House. House-Senate negotiators are now working to resolve the differences between their bills. The King Amendment, proposed by Representative Steve King of Iowa, claims to protect interstate commerce, but in reality it is designed to undermine animal welfare laws enacted by individual states.
Please take a moment to call the four leaders of the House-Senate Farm Bill Conference Committee to ask them to remove the King Amendment from the final Farm Bill.

- Rep. Frank Lucas: [masked]
- Rep. Collin Peterson: [masked]
- Sen. Debbie Stabenow: [masked]
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.
Spread the word.
