A bill that would prohibit the filming or photography of farms in Florida is dead.

A bill outlawing photography of or filming on any farm in Florida without consent from the farm’s owner will not become law. Introduced into the Florida state legislature earlier this year by Sen. Jim Norman, the bill died this past weekend with the closing of Florida’s legislative session. While filming footage of farms in Florida remains legal, the work of animal-rights groups such as People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), Mercy For Animals (MFA), and others is still in jeopardy in Iowa and Minnesota, where similar bills have been introduced.
