Idaho Gov. Accepts Dairy Money to Pass Ag-Gag Bill

Thousands of dollars from the dairy industry have been donated to state politicians who recently outlawed factory farm investigations.

Earlier this week, Idaho governor CL “Butch” Otter signed an ag-gag bill that will make it illegal for animal rights activists to utilize their most effective tool in exposing factory farm injustices—undercover investigations. Previous exposés have revealed Idaho dairy farmers kicking cows, jumping on them, and beating them with canes, but despite these past transgressions, state lawmakers have given their overwhelming support to SB 1337, which could cause anyone who photographs a factory farm to be imprisoned. Non-profit group National Institute on Money in State Politics pointed out that the agriculture industry has donated thousands of dollars to every facet of the Idaho government, from the Senate to the House to the governor, notably those who voted for the ag-gag bill. Before Governor Otter signed the bill, more than 100,000 signatures of in-state and out-of-state citizens urging the politician to veto the legislation, were collected, but ignored.
