NY Ag-Gag Bill Passes

A New York bill to prohibit unauthorized photography of farms has passed in committee.

Yesterday’s five-to-one Senate committee vote passing bill S.5172 means legislation prohibiting the unauthorized photography or video recording on a New York farm is now one step closer to becoming law. The bill, similar to the other “ag-gag” bills defeated in Florida and Minnesota and pending in Iowa, will make the work of factory-farm opponents and animal-rights groups much more difficult. Organizations such as the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) believe the bills are an attempt on the part of the agribusiness industry to hide inhumane and harmful practices on factory farms.
