Congress: Don't Trample My Right to Safe Food

Rep. Steve King has introduced an amendment to the U.S. Farm Bill that would undermine the longstanding Constitutional rights of states to protect the health, safety, and welfare of their citizens and local businesses. If passed, it will override vital state laws such as Marylan's ban on arsenic additives in chicken feed. The amendment would also stop state GMO-labeling efforts, and derail farm reform measures such as one just passed in California that seeks to put a stop to overcrowding in poultry cages. For more information, read Delegate Tom Hucker's editorial in the Baltimore Sun.

Sign below to ask your representatives to stop Rep. Steve King's amendment to the Farm BIll.
