Legislation Alert

We would like to draw your attention to some recent legeslation that is making it's way through the legislative process. Indiana seantor Jean Leising has authored bill SB 249 which will prevent local governments from preventing, regulating, or restricting factory farm (CAFO) operations.

We feel this bill could be particularly devastating to a county, such as Steuben, that depends on it's natural resources. Please contact your state senator immediately and let them know that while we support farming we do not support factory farms and we do not support this bill. Let them know that you believe that factory farming operations require more regulation and oversight not less.

Please act immediately as this bill will be on the senate floor next week.
