Foie Gras Bill Passes California Senate!
- Foie Gras Bill Passes California Senate!
Senate Bill 1520 (SB 1520), introduced by Senator John Burton, passed
the California State Senate on Tuesday, May 18! This is a major
victory and represents the greatest progress to date for legislation
to prohibit the cruel force feeding of birds to produce foie gras in
the U.S. Thank you to everyone who contacted their California state
senator in support of this humane legislation.
SB 1520 now goes to the California Assembly. It is imperative for
California citizens to contact their state assemblymembers and to
urge them to vote "YES" on SB 1520. If you live in California, or
know others who do, please get involved in this effort. Contact
information for California state assembly members can be found at
