Topic: Virginia Farm Animals Bills SB 1026 & HB1541

UPC president Karen Davis joins host Rebecca Faris tomorrow to talk about two bills on Virginia Gov. Robert McDonnell’s desk that if signed into law will relieve farming interests in the state of all responsibility for their animals to the point of “emaciation” and “dehydration.” We’ll talk about what people can do to stop these cruel bills from becoming law.

For information about SB 1026 and HB 1541, see “Tell VA Governor to Veto Cruel Farm Animal Bills” at http://www.upc-online.org/alerts/110304veto_va_bills.html. To date, Gov. McDonnell has taken No Action. Please urge him to VETO these bills – no matter what state you live in!
