Take Action: Oppose HR 4879/HR 3599 and Support Animal ProtectionPosted on January 31, 2018
Many critical laws protecting animals, including those regulating factory farms and preventing the sale of dog meat, are in danger. Representative Steve King (R-IA) is trying to pass HR 4879/HR 3599, the so-called “States’ Rights Elimination Act,” which would undo many of the legislative victories you’ve achieved for animal protection.
HR 4879/HR 3599 takes away your state’s ability to enact animal welfare laws protecting animals and consumers from food produced in unsafe conditions. Rep. King tried to pass similar legislation a few years ago, and animal advocates like you fought back. Congress needs to hear from you again.
Please take a few minutes to make a short, respectful phone call to your U.S. Representative and two U.S. Senators at (202) 224-3121. A sample message: “I am _____ (name of legislator)’s constituent. I am calling to ask you to oppose HR 4879/HR 3599, sponsored by Representative King, and instead support legislation that protects animals.”
