U.S. CapitolCall Today: Ask Your Members of Congress to Reject the King Amendment

Please take a minute to call your members of Congress and ask them to reject the King amendment, which would nullify hundreds of state laws protecting animals, public health, and the environment. Please be polite and encouraging. Use the following talking points as a guide:

  • The King amendment nullifies hundreds of state laws protecting public health, animals, and the environment.
  • The amendment violates states’ rights to prohibit the sale of products they have found to be harmful to their citizens.
  • The safety of almost all agricultural goods is put at risk by this broad, overreaching amendment.
  • Environmental laws and laws regulating animal welfare are also threatened. Even laws regarding tobacco, child labor, and worker safety could be erased by this radical amendment.
  • Please do all you can to remove the King amendment from the Farm Bill.
