Texas: Urge Your Legislators to Oppose Freedom-Crushing Ag-Gag Bill!

pigUDPATE: This action is now closed. SB 1884 died on the House floor and did not advance. Thank you to everyone who contacted their legislators in opposition to this bill.

Texas lawmakers are trying to stop whistleblowers from exposing animal cruelty with the introduction of SB 1884  an ag-gag bill that would criminalize undercover investigations and inhibit investigators from revealing the abuse and neglect animals are subjected to on industrial farms.

If enacted, the ag-gag bill  which was introduced by Texas State Sen. Lois Kolkhorst (R)  would create a criminal offense for "breaking and entering, or possession of records or equipment without consent for animal or crop facilities."

Lawmakers should be working to protect farm animals NOT the animal abusers! Please help ensure SB 1884 does NOT pass the House Agriculture & Livestock Committee!

TEXAS: TAKE ACTION!

Calls and emails are urgently needed to stop ag-gag bill SB 1884 from passing the House Agricutlure & Livestock Committee! Contact the House Committee members and urge them to oppose SB 1884! Please find your representative's contact information in the list below.

NOTE: If you've previously taken action on this alert, please do so again! It's now being heard by a different committee!
