The House of Representatives passed its Farm Bill 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.
A House-Senate conference committee will now negotiate the final bill, and we need to keep the King amendment out!
