This is a note I received from Wayne Pacelle, President & CEO of The Humane Society of the United States:
“On June 25th, in an unprecedented development in the history of congressional action on Farm Bills, the full House rejected the bill advanced to the floor by House leadership. This is good news for animal advocates since this Farm Bill contained the overly broad and dangerous King Amendment that could have repealed state laws on farm animal confinement, horse slaughter, puppy mills, and shark finning.
Thank you for all your calls and actions on this issue.
Wayne Pacelle, President & CEO
The Humane Society of the United States”
