Calls needed for Animal ID bill in Texas Senate!

FARFA_wilderness_logoAlert from the Farm and Ranch Freedom Alliance:

The Animal ID bill has been scheduled for a vote by the Texas Senate tomorrow, Thursday, April 25.  Please help us fight back!

This bill — SB 1233 / HB 2311 — would authorize the Texas Animal Health Commission (TAHC) to adopt federal animal ID requirements, including that all poultry be individually tagged with permanent leg bands unless they are from a commercial hatchery or a confinement operation. The bill would also authorize TAHC to adopt future federal regulations whenever it wants, which could mean new regulations on sheep, goats, pigs, cattle, and horses.
