Farm Animal Cruelty Act

US Representatives ask citizens to support legislation that would stop federally funding factory farming.

In March, US House of Representatives Elton Gallegly, R-Calif., and Diane Watson, D-Calif., introduced the Prevention of Farm Animal Cruelty Act, and this week the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) is asking concerned citizens to show their support by endorsing the legislation. The bill would require that meat used for federal programs, including the National School Lunch Program, be purchased from farms that do not confine animals to cages and crates. ASPCA is asking that people voice their support for the bill by emailing their US representative via a form on its website.
