Time on NY Ag-Gag Bill

A recent article on time.com unearths the motivations behind New York’s ag-gag bill.

Author Alexandra Silver for time.com recently tackled the ag-gag bill (a bill that would prohibit whistle blowing and unauthorized photography on farms) currently pending in the New York legislature. The New York bill, as opposed to similar bills attempted in Florida, Minnesota, and Iowa, has terrorism in mind. According to the article, the bill’s sponsor, Patty Ritchie, was asked by the New York Farm Bureau to introduce the bill “to help insure the safety and integrity of the state’s food supply.” According to the article, however, the safety of New York’s food is not a topic of concern. Fortunately for animal-rights activists, the bill has little probability of success, as it does not have an Assembly sponsor and the legislative session ends June 20.
