    Not gonna be good at all. Really pisses me off. Our country is run by crooks. They attach all kinds of crap to bills with no related name and no way all the guys putting it through know all thats is them.

    Is this bill for a certain state or for the whole country ? I thought it was already a felony to be a spectator in certain states.

    Re: house passed farm bill

    It's a federal law so it will supersede state laws but to be honest I don't see this being heavily enforced in friendly states such as alabama. Were I live you get a prison sentence for ordering a gamecock magazine(not that exaggerated btw). Some places are gonna have to be more invite only, family and such, type events but it won't majorly change anything I don't think. Just more of a pain for those who aren't already used to this type of thing.

    The whole point of having fowl is the enjoyment of raising and trying out our ideas. If your in it for the money or the high go to a casino.
    If you keep your testing small/familiar and in friendly arenas. It will never die.
    Everyone is too rapped up in there own soap opera to give a dam about what we do AS LONG AS YOU DON'T DO IT IN THERE FACE. We will be fine.

    The farm bill has passed several times but, it went no where as of now. It does have an amendment on it that is devastating to game fowl lovers. But, nothing has been done yet and will not be done until the house passes the bill and the senate passes the same thing and the president signs off on it. Then we will read what is actually says and we will know what the truth is. Until then, we can just hope that the cockfighting thing is dropped. If not, we are screwed.

    Also the Senate bill 666 and the house bill 366 are still in the committee, so far they haven't done anything to those bills.........

    I was told by a reliable source that ammendment 33 was pulled from the farm bill due to the the amount of calls they received opposing it . But that a man from Connecticut introduced SB666 with the exact same wording as ammendment 33

    Re: house passed farm bill

    The ASPCA applauds Representatives McGovern and Marino for their continued leadership in strengthening laws to combat animal fighting and protect public safety.
    On the negative side, the House-passed Farm Bill includes a provision introduced by Rep. Steve King (R-IA) that would weaken state animal cruelty laws across the country. This dangerous provision would prevent states from passing their own laws regarding the production of “agricultural products”—a term so broad that it could include farm animals and dogs in puppy mills. As a result, improved animal welfare standards at the state level could be negated if this provision is enacted.
    The House Farm Bill must now be reconciled with the Senate-passed version. The Senate bill, passed last month, contains similar animal fighting language but does not contain the dangerous King provision. The ASPCA continues to work with Congress to make sure that the final Farm Bill eventually presented to the President includes the best possible protections for animals.}this is crazy they put this in how many bills to get it passed sneaky mf's.
