Just a few months ago, Iowa saw a tremendous victory when a federal court struck down ag gag laws as unconstitutional.

But now ag gag legislation has again reared its ugly head and legislators are trying to push them through the House and Senate Agriculture Committees before a Friday deadline that could kill them.

These committees meet tomorrow. Please contact as many members of the two committees that you can TONIGHT and tell them to vote NO on ag gag. 

You can find contact information for the Senate Ag Committee members here.

You can find contact information for the House Ag Committee members here.

Like the 2012 laws we were able to strike down in federal court, these bills unconstitutionally violate free speech rights and intimidate journalists from investigating ag facilities.
