Last week, the House of Representatives narrowly passed the Farm Bill, by a vote of 216-208, including the dangerous and overreaching "King amendment," which threatens to repeal dozens of animal protection laws. It could nullify not only measures relating to animal welfare—like farm animal confinement, horse slaughter, puppy mills, and shark finning—but a wide range of other concerns including food safety, child labor and the environment.
Please make a brief, polite phone call to your U.S. Representative at(202) 224-3121. You can say: "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." You can also take further action by using the HSUS automated letter ➜ http://bit.ly/1bGa3QD
