The Indiana Farm Bureau is thanking the state House today regarding the passage of two senate bills that will now head to the Governor's desk for his signature. Senate Bill 101, otherwise known as the so-called “Ag-Gag” legislation, passed by a vote of 73-to-25. Supporters of the measure say it's important to protect the rights of private property owners, while opponents say it would make felons out of whistle blowers exposing unethical or illegal activities on industrial farms.
The Indiana Farm Bureau also hailed the passage of Senate Bill 186 by a House vote of 67-to-30, which they says reaffirms the importance of a strong farm sector to the overall health of rural communities and the state's economy. Opponents, which included small farmers and rural landowners who testified against it, stated the legislation would only shield big agri-businesses and make it more difficult for citizens and state regulators to challenge giant concentrated animal feeding operations.
