If a devastating measure from Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) passes, animal protection laws that activists have worked decades to achieve could be nullified in an instant.
Dog meat bans could be overturned in states like New York and Georgia. California’s ban on cruel foie gras could become void. Hens could be forced to live in filthy, disease-ridden battery cages in states where such confinement is now outlawed. And puppy mills that sell sick, abused dogs could be unstoppable.
We must fight back against King’s deceptively titled Protect Interstate Commerce Act (HR 4879/HR 3599), which would block states‘ authority to enact their own laws against animal cruelty and unsafe food in agriculture. Don’t let this terrible measure pass!
Then, call your representative and state senators at (202) 224-3121 to respectfully tell them you are a concerned constituent and urge them to stand against HR 4879/HR 3599 and instead support laws that protect animals from abuse. Follow up with an email message.
This is the second time Rep. King has proposed this insidious measure. Activists defeated the bill the first time, and we can defeat it again!
