      A message from The Humane Society of the United States:

      Don't Let Congress Undo State and Local Animal Laws

      A small provision—Section 123—tucked into the pending Farm Bill in
      the U.S. House of Representatives would prohibit states and
      localities from banning activities they deem to be contrary to public
      health, safety, and morals. Section 123 would undo bans on horse
      slaughter, intensive confinement of pigs and calves raised for veal,
      force-feeding of ducks and geese to make foie gras, and other
      important laws. It's an outrageous power grab that would undermine
      the democratic process and deny citizens the right to pass state or
      local laws on issues of humane treatment or food safety.


      This could be the most urgent alert ever! If we don't get rid of
      Section 123, people who've worked so hard to get state and local
      animal protection laws passed—investing hours and hours in good faith
      that their involvement in the legislative process matters—will find
      out that their hard-won achievements are wiped out by this heavy-
      handed federal law.


      TAKE ACTION
      Please make brief, polite phone calls to your two U.S. Senators and
      one U.S. Representative and urge them to oppose Section 123 of the
      House Farm Bill. You can reach your federal legislators by calling
      the Capitol switchboard at (202) 224-3121, or click here to find
      their Capitol office phone numbers.


      After you make your phone calls, please go to the following URL to
      email your senators and representative.
