Victory for Family Farmers and Local Control:
As a result of massive opposition from family farmers and rural landowners, the CAFO Bills (SB 364 & SB 428) never had the votes to pass in the Senate or the House. In April, the Senate voted to set up a joint Senate/House interim committee to study the issue of CAFOs and local control. The House refused to bring the bill up because it did not have the votes to pass.
