Nebraska State Lawmaker to Reintroduce Right to Farm Legislation

Ken Anderson reported yesterday at Brownfield that, “A Nebraska state senator says he plans to reintroduce a Right to Farm bill in the 2017 Nebraska legislature.

“Senator John Kuehn of Heartwell sponsored legislation in this year’s session that would have placed a Right to Farm constitutional amendment before Nebraska voters. However, he withdrew the bill following a contentious first round floor debate.

“Kuehn tells Brownfield he’s more convinced than ever that Nebraska needs Right to Farm.”

The article explained that, “Animal rights groups, led by the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), have vigorously fought Right to Farm efforts in other states and would likely do the same in Nebraska. But Kuehn says that’s not a reason to back down…[M]issouri and North Dakota have passed Right to Farm laws. Oklahoma voters will consider a Right to Farm amendment this November.”
