UPDATE: VICTORY! Beef Bill DEFEATED thanks to YOUR 11th hour calls to California State Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson, California’s Senate Judiciary Committee chair at 916 651-4019. You said NO on AB 243, that you did NOT want your tax dollars used to promote the beef industry in a so-called “check off” bill where the California government would actively promote beef consumption! They LISTENED! The bill is DEAD for 2017! Dr. Neal Barnard of Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine told #JaneUnChained why it’s so bad! “Farmers” are already letting thousands of California cows die horrible deaths. See below. This is animal abuse.
