Thank you to everyone who called and wrote their Senators, asking them to stop funding NAIS! The Senate Agriculture Appropriations subcommittee voted unanimously to ask the Government Accountability Office (GAO) to review NAIS. We will monitor what comes out of the GAO and keep you informed when the issue returns to the Senate.
This will probably be a long and challenging struggle, but the subcommittee’s vote shows that we are making progress. We encourage everyone to continue their efforts to inform others about NAIS, both the public and your elected officials. Visit the Farm and Ranch Freedom Alliance citizens action center at
http://www.farmandranchfreedom.org/action.html for tools to help you take action at the local, state, and federal levels.
You may also want to read articles on NAIS at http://www.farmandranchfreedom.org/archives.html to become more informed and be able to counter the government’s and industry’s pro-NAIS arguments.
Working together, we can make our voices heard!
