Republicans funded by Big Agribusiness are at it again, this time trying to pass a Farm Bill that includes the Ending Agricultural Trade Suppression (EATS) Act, introduced by Senator Roger Marshall of Kansas and Representative Ashley Hinson of Iowa.

This pro-factory farm legislation comes as a direct response to California’s Proposition 12, an animal welfare win that even the conservative Supreme Court upheld last May. It allows the state to enforce strict guidelines on space and conditions for pigs sold as meat in California.

Proposition 12 was a victory for public health, humane animal treatment, and sustainable agriculture advocates, and was passed into law by California voters. The EATS Act threatens to prevent states from passing measures like Proposition 12, infringing on states’ rights to respond to local and regional issues like food safety, diseases, and invasive species.

Tell your Representative and Senators to STOP the EATS Act from being included in the 2023 Farm Bill.
