If anyone plans to testify before these Senate committees against the resolution, PM or call me. I testified last week and I don't know that what I said had an effect, but the pro-slaughter resolution did not pass in our state.

If Arkansas (a Farm Bureau state and headquarters for Tyson and OK foods) can stop this legislation, then almost every other state in the union should be able to prevent it.
