We’ve written about the King Amendment before, and it keeps coming up in the news. It’s like the end of a horror movie when the villain just won’t die!
The House of Representatives passed the dangerous and overreaching King amendment, which threatens to repeal many animal protection laws on farm animal confinement, horse slaughter, puppy mills, shark finning, and even dog meat. A House-Senate conference committee will now negotiate the final Farm Bill, and we need to keep the King amendment out!
Please make a brief, polite phone call to Rep. Jim McDermott (202) 225-3106 asking for help to remove the King amendment from the final Farm Bill. If you have time, please also call Sen. Maria Cantwell (202) 224-3441 and Sen. Patty Murray (202) 224-2621.
You can say: “I’m a concerned constituent, and I’m calling to urge you to oppose the King amendment and remove it from the Farm Bill. It’s a dangerous and radical attack on states’ rights.”
