Tell Florida Senators to Oppose Ag-Gag Bill SB 1184

As of January 24, 2012, the Florida Senate has removed language that would have criminalized photography and video footage on a farm without written consent of the farm. THANK YOU for contacting your representative!

Florida Senator Jim Norman has introduced SB 1184, an ag-gag bill that would criminalize video footage taken on a farm without written consent of the farm.

The bill was introduced at the behest of a Florida egg farmer.

SB 1184 chills the free speech of non-violent activists and investigative journalists. Undercover footage is one of the only methods available to activists and journalists who wish to expose animal abuse, environmental protection violations, and actions that compromise the health of the public.

Live in Florida? Send a quick letter of opposition to your Senator. Representatives respond best to their own constituents!
