I sign every bee petition about insecticide but right now I can't sign this because I have become so confused about the farm bill. I thought we didn't want it because the republicans want to reduce SNAP benefits. If I can wrap my head around who is doing what I will sign later.

This is great news for the Bees, but no tall in the Farm Bill is good. According to PRMC the farm bill reduces the protection of farm animals. Please write your Congressman to fix this.

The house farm bill has been defeated. There are so many other objections to the bill.

The Farm Bill is just no good!!! Per the Farm Sanctuary: "...it contains a provision, called the King Amendment, that will undermine state laws regarding farm animal confinement, foie gras sales, horse slaughter, puppy mills, and shark finning. It might also affect a range of other concerns, including food safety, child labor, and the environment".
