VOTE NO on Senate Bill 510!

This bill would subject farmers to excessive regulation and ultimately would threaten local producers, small farmers and perhaps your backyard garden. It is a bad bill that needs to be defeated. The Senate voted Wednesday to end cloture (debate) on S. 510 and delayed their vote on the bill until the first business day after Thanksgiving.
Senators Tester and Baucus, we know that you both voted to end debate so it could be swiftly passed during the lame duck Congress.  Senator Tester offered an amendment to exempt “small farmers” from the bill and subject them instead to state and local regulations.  Amendments do nothing to change language in the bill that ensures harmonization with the UN’s World Trade Organization agreement.
VOTE NO ON S.510!!!
