CT H.B. 5416—An Act Establishing a Livestock Care Standards Advisory Council
Enacting laws to improve the lives of farm animals is difficult enough already, but it will become even more challenging in Connecticut if House Bill 5416, legislation to establish a Livestock Care Standards Advisory Council, is passed.
These councils exist to slow down—or stop—bills to advance the welfare of farm animals. The proposed Connecticut livestock council, which would be composed almost entirely of agribusiness representatives, would likely ensure a very tough road to passage for even sensible humane legislation supported by a majority of Connecticut residents.
H.B. 5416 could be voted on any day now in the House and then move quickly to the Senate. With the legislative session coming to a close on Wednesday, May 7, it is critical that you contact your state representative and state senator now to express your opposition to this bad bill for farm animals.
What You Can Do
Thank you, Connecticut!
