Iowa Representative Steve King recently slipped an amendment into a proposed bill that would dramatically alter state laws protecting animals. If approved, the change would allow puppy mills, reduce animal welfare standards for commercial agriculture,

The Smith amendment is so disgusting. The man truly must be stopped. This is the same representative that said he saw nothing wrong with dog fighting, and people should be able to bring their family to watch. How in the name of God did the people of Iowa elect this man? Signed and noted

This amendment is completely contrary to what most of believe just for health and safety protections. For those who advocate for animals it is an anathema. Congress needs a lesson to understand what this is about.

this is one of the most important action items there is, Please everyone, go beyond signing a petition. Telephone your Senators and Congressional Representative and leave a message that the King Amendment is truly horrible and you and your family and friends want them to argue against it and vote against it. Its goal is to federally protect cruelty and torture of farmed animals and to make it impossible for individual states to provide any protection. It is truly the worst of the worst.
Thank you
This is an urgent very meaningful action that is necessary to help the animals we all value and care about.

Signed -wasn't Iowa the first state in America to pass the Ag-Gag bill? the Govenor being Terry Branstad and his supporter a democratic senator Mr. Joe Seng-supposedly a -veterinarian- what more cruelty could be done to the animals in this state ?who is this man King to bring about -changes? it seems they have done enough harm already to the animals in Iowa -animals that are protected and well cared for are also protecting the health and well being of their consumers.

to be blunt, King is a sadistic bastard, who is probably a psychopath (IMO)..only those who are incapable of feeling empathy want to bring famiiy to watch dogs rip eachothr apart. What fun for little Junior right?
this needs to be stopped NOW

I agree that it's ridiculous when so many signed a petition asking Congress to pass the Farm Bill, there was a big gaping hole asking to pass it with the King Amendment in it.....as well as leaving out the SNAP program. Although I love animals, and sign an enormous amount of petitions for their protection all around the world, SNAP keeps Americans from starving. Can't sign the petition to pass the Farm bill, but am continuing to ask for elimination of the King Amendment & to put SNAP back in the bill. Not sure if the King Amendment includes Monsanto protection, but it's in that bill, too....to my knowledge. Let me know if I'm incorrect.

There is no reason to add more suffering to farmed animals just to allow megacorporations to make more money. Rep. King's amendment is at the very least not necessary, and at most, will lead to worse conditions for animals meant as pets.

Thx Roxy for that info regarding the farm bill petition,.. I was pretty sure I didnt sign the petition asking Congress to pass the farm bill, because I remember thinking what about the king amendment, foodstamps and MONSANTO?!
I just checked and I didnt sign it. What a nightmare it is. and how sick is our govt to even consider these things.
