Oppose the EATS Act Now!

A proposed bill, known as the Ending Agricultural Trade Suppression (EATS) Act (H.R. 4417/ S. 2019), could strip states and localities of their right to impose standards or conditions on the production or manufacturing of agricultural products sold or offered for sale in interstate commerce when those standards differ from federal law or the laws of other states.

The EATS Act would effectively strip states of any power to regulate the kind of agricultural products that enter their borders, imperiling progressive legislation that targets puppy mills, animal testing, farmed animals, the wildlife trade, pesticide use, chemicals in baby food, pollution, and many other laws designed to protect public health and safety.
