Tell them to VOTE NO on House Bill 100 & House Joint Resolution 3!
Written to protect Premium Standard Farms (PSF; owned by Smithfield Foods--the largest pork corporation in the world), the CAFO Protection Bills would limit the rights of family farmers and rural landowners to defend their property through the court system.
At the expense of Missouri’s independent family farmers, rural landowners and theirconstitutional right to protect their property through the court system, corporate lobbyists have convinced some legislators of the need to protect a very small minority of corporate industrial livestock operations.
* Please tell Missouri legislators: “Taking away the rights of farmers and landowners to protect their properties through the court system is unconstitutional and just plain wrong! Vote NO on Senate Bill 187 & House Bill 209!”
House Joint Resolution 3 & House Bill 100:
Yet again this year, bills (HB 100, HJR 3 & HJR 17) are moving through the House Chamber that would strip Local Control and the ability of local communities to protect family farmers and landowners from the negative impacts of industrial livestock operations.
* Please tell Missouri ’s legislators: “Government is best when it is closest to the people. Don’t Mess with OUR Local Control! Vote NO on HJR 3!”
