HCS/HJR 86 in Missouri

If you live in Missouri and own livestock, you need to get on the phone to your senators and tell them you support HCS/HJR 86.  This bill proposes a constitutional amendment affirming the right to raise animals in a humane manner in order to protect Missouri's agricultural economy. 

"No law criminalizing or regulating crops or the welfare of animals will be valid unless based ongenerally accepted scientific principles and enacted by the general assembly."  In other words, regulations will be under the authority of the legislature instead of scare tactics generally employed by activist groups and the like.

This bill has passed the House, so call your Senators and tell them to support this bill.
