All of the hatcheries and other folks involved with
shipping live birds have finally gotten a bill, HR 2590, through
the Senate and into committee. To insure that we will be able
to stay in business and ship your poultry to you this coming season,
this bill must be passed through committee just as it is stated
without any changes in the language.
PETA and the Human Society, two very active animal
rights groups, are contacting each committee member asking them
to consider changing the language of this bill. A change in the
language is what the animal rights people want and dismantles
our bill and all we have worked for. Please don’t let them win.
Every office on Capitol Hill can be reached by calling
202-224-3121. Listed below is a list of the committee members.
If any of these listed elected officials represent you or your
district, please take the time to give this number a call and
tell them NOT TO CHANGE THE LANGUAGE IN BILL – H.R. 2590. Even
if you are not represented on this committee please call your
Senator and urge them to tell their peers on the committee to
not change this language.
We are on the last hill. Help us reach the top.
