CAFO bill #3 up tomorrow – losing local control

CAFO bill #3 is up

House Local Government will vote on HB 1201 Thursday, February 19, at 10amCT in room 414

Great news – two out of three bad CAFO bills have been killed by the legislature. But there is still one left, and it might just be the worst of the bunch. HB 1201 takes away local control, makes approval of CAFOs easier, and would spell disaster for many of our communities concerned about public input and involvement in CAFO decisions.

HB 1201 is up in the House Local Government Committee in less than 24 hours. Please email the committee before Thursday morning at 10amCT! Make sure to say in the subject line “Vote against HB 1201.” If you are a farmer, rancher, or in any way involved in the agriculture industry, please tell these representatives so they get the message: we are not opposed to agriculture development – but this is the wrong way to do it.
