      SCR 1035 KILLED IN SENATE TODAY!

      Thanks for all your calls to your legislators on SCR 1035! The bill
      that targeted the Humane Farms initiative was killed 15-12-2 in the
      Senate Committee of the Whole. Sen. Aboud spoke out strongly
      against the bill, refuting Sen. Flake's claim that his amendment
      addressed opponents' concerns. She raised numerous points
      concerning the bill's vague language and unintended consequences.
      Sen. Brotherton expressed concerns about how the bill would impact
      local control and enforcement of criminal statutes. Sen. Allen also
      spoke out against SCR 1035 and held up an enormous stack of emails
      she received from constituents opposed to the bill.

      Senators who voted NO: Aboud, Aguirre, Allen, Brotherton, Cheuvront,
      Garcia, Hale, Hellon, Huppenthal, Leff, Miranda, Mitchell, Rios,
      Tibshraeny, and Waring

      Senators who voted YES: Arzberger, Bee, Blendu, Burns, Cannell,
      Flake, Gould, Gray, Harper, Martin, Verschoor, and Bennett

      Senators Not Voting: Johnson and Soltero

      If your Senator voted NO, please thank him or her for opposing SCR
      1035. All Senators can be reached at the website below:

      The groups supporting the Humane Farms initiative will continue to
      monitor the Legislature for any bills aimed at the initiative.
      Thanks again to everyone for contacting your Senators. YOU made the
      difference!
