Hog farms: call today, YOUR Rep's vote could make a difference

NC should protect the rights of people, not industrial hog farmers

Thanks to YOUR calls and e-mails, on May 5th, Governor Cooper vetoed House Bill 467, the bill that would limit the ability of communities near hog farms to seek compensation for health effects, nuisance odors, loss of income and other impacts. The Governor acknowledged that nuisance laws can be important for protecting private property rights.

The NC House plans to vote today at 3PM on whether to override Governor Cooper’s veto of House Bill 467, the bill that would limit the ability of communities near hog farms to seek compensation for health effects, nuisance odors, loss of income and other impacts. The NC Senate will have a chance to vote, too. It will be a close vote, and a call to YOUR Representative and Senator could make all the difference. Ask them to vote “no” to the resolution to override the veto, and protect people, not industry!
