Right to Farm Bill

Missouri lawmakers are pushing for a Right to Farm bill.
JEFFERSON CITY, MO --- Missouri lawmakers are pushing for a Right to Farm bill. State representative Bill Reiboldt says Missourians can expect to see the issue on the ballot in 2014. If passed, Reiboldt says it would give farmers the right to raise their livestock in a humane way without being placed under strict regulations from outside sources. He says that means the agriculture industry in the Show-Me-State would continue to thrive without any interruptions.

"With outside pressures, animal rights groups and activists, we don't want them coming into Missouri and disrupting our number one industry," said Representative Bill Reiboldt, R-Dist. 160.

North Dakota was the first state to pass a Right to Farm bill in 2012, which would make Missouri the second state in the nation to make it a law if it passes.
