We have a chance to deal a hard blow to the USDA’s plans to tag and track all of our animals. Congressman Ron Paul of Texas has proposed an amendment to the Agriculture Appropriations bill that will block funding of the National Animal Identification System (NAIS). You can read about it here on my NoNAIS.org blog. Please phone and email your US House Representatives and ask them to vote yes to support Congressman Ron Paul’s amendment to HR 5384 which blocks funding of NAIS. The vote is tomorrow, Wednesday, May 17th, 2006.
[Update: The vote has been moved to Thursday, May 18th, 2006 so there is still time to contact your US House of Representatives members. -WJ]
[Update: The vote has been moved to next week so there is even more time to contact your US House of Representatives members. -WJ]
