CAFO Bill Action Alert

Stop HJR 61, HB 1324 & SB 490

Please Call Your Senator & Other “Key Senators” Below

 

Pro-CAFO House Bills would exempt all existing corporate controlled factory farms (including some of the biggest in the country) from any additional future state standards.  This is at the expense of farm families, personal property rights, independent livestock producers and the environment.

 

Pro-CAFO Senate Bill would severely limit the ability of family farmers and rural landowners to protect their private property and farms. 

 

·         HJR 61 & HB 1324 (sponsored by Representative Loehner) exempts all existing concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFOs), including some of the biggest corporate ag polluters in the state, from any future state standards that would protect farmers, landowners and the environment from the negative impacts of factory farms. Furthermore, HJR 61 is a proposed constitutional amendment that would cement this pro-CAFO language into our constitution.  These bills will be sent to the Senate very soon.  (click blue links for bill language)

·         SB 490 (sponsored by Senator Munzlinger) takes away constitutional rights of farmers and landowners to protect their property & property rights through the court system.  Corporate lobbyists have convinced some legislators of the need to protect a very small minority of corporate industrial livestock operations at the expense of the property rights of the majority.
