Finish the Job on the Farm Bill

UPDATE: On February 7, 2014, President Obama signed the Farm Bill. The bill includes a provision making it a federal crime to attend or bring a child under the age of 16 to an animal fighting event, based on the Animal Fighting Spectator Prohibition Act, which will fortify the federal law against organized and barbaric dogfighting and cockfighting rings. Spectator admission fees and high-stakes gambling dollars finance this criminal industry and without spectators, it will be more difficult for dogfighting and cockfighting rings to make a profit.

The Farm Bill also jettisoned the dangerous and overreaching “King amendment,” which sought to nullify state laws setting standards for agricultural production and threatened so many laws on animal welfare around the country.

Defeating the King amendment and enacting the animal fighting spectator legislation were top priorities for HSLF. Thank you for helping us achieve these two important victories.
