Ag-Gag Law Flow Chart

Grist.org put out a flow chart to understand the ins and outs of the various ag-gag laws moving through state legislatures:

newaggagflowchartInstead of actually cleaning up their act, various companies have decided to respond to the spate of video exposes by sponsoring legislation that would make it illegal to make videos like these.  The sponsors of the legislation are couching the support for a restriction of our free speech rights by saying it protects our food supply from terrorism, blah, blah, blah…

In Iowa such a law was passed in March 2012.  I do not know of anyone who has challenged the law’s constitutionality or if anyone has been brought up on charges related to the law.  It’s only a matter of time.

  1. I am from TN. Ag-gag made it through that state’s legislature and awaits the governor’s signature. The Walking Horse industry along with animal agriculture want it. I am sad that states allow this kind of laws to go into place. And I’m glad I don’t live there anymore.
