NDFB issues Action Alert on SB 2211
Created: 4/01/13 (Mon) | Topic: Issues
On Friday March 29, 2013 the House Agriculture Committee passed SB 2211 the animal cruelty bill out of committee 13-0 Do Pass as amended.
Extensive work was done with this bill in a subcommittee over a week’s time. The subcommittee took great effort to listen to testimony presented to them from both sides. After much deliberation and attention to detail by the subcommittee and their counsel the current draft emerged.
Farm Bureau is comfortable the current draft does not pose a significant threat to production agriculture, and thus should be passed by the North Dakota House of Representatives.
NDFB is encouraging members to reach out to their representatives urging them to support SB 2211 as amended. Our Action Alert link has more information.
