Tell Tennessee Legislators to Oppose the Ag-Gag Bill!

The Tennessee legislature is considering an ag-gag bill, HB 1838. Last year a federal district court found Idaho’s very similar “ag-gag” law unconstitutional on First Amendment grounds. Idaho’s law made it a felony to document and expose illegal and cruel practices at concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFOs) and other agricultural facilities without the owner’s permission.

Laws protecting the deplorable conditions on many agricultural facilities are dangerous for other reasons as well. CAFOs (concentrated animal feeding operations) are responsible for foodborne illnesses like salmonella and listeria; are notorious for their overuse and misuse of antibiotics, exacerbating the “superbug” problem that is rendering many antibiotics all but useless; and ruin rural economies in a variety of ways. In addition, there is the incredibly inhumane treatment of the animals themselves. 

Write to your state legislators and urge them to vote NO on HB 1838!
