Massachusetts: Oppose Creation of Livestock Board!
MA H.753—Establishes Livestock Board
Sponsor: Rep. Stephen Kulik
ASPCA Position: Oppose
Action Needed: Please contact your Massachusetts state senator and representative and urge them to oppose H.753.
The Massachusetts Legislature is currently considering H.753, a bill to create a state Livestock Care and Standards Board. This board would have the power to veto farm animal welfare regulations issued by the state, but would not be accountable to the public.
The board membership this bill proposes is neither fair nor balanced. The board would accept little public input, drain the State’s resources, and intentionally cut many animal welfare organizations out of the process of creating animal welfare regulations.
