URGENT NAIS ALERT

If you are a small farmer in America, please copy and past this article from nonais.org and post it on your blog. Urge everyone you know to call and write to express their opposition to NAIS.

To My Faithful Readers….this legislation is so important to me that I will not be posting again until March 12….oh, how hard will that be, especially if my Jersey Girls come home….but it is more important to me that the word about NAIS get out.   Please tell everyone you know.  Next, they will come to chip us.  1984.  Wake up America!

Congressional Hearing on NAIS

****ACTION ALERT*****
WHAT: *Congressiona*l *Hearing on NAIS
*WHEN: *Wednesday, March 11
*WHERE: *Washington, DC

The U.S. House Agriculture Subcommittee on Livestock, Dairy and Poultry will hold a hearing on NAIS on March 11. Bills to put NAIS into law, HR875 and companion Senate S814, are being pushed through Congress, as well as an Appropriations Bill with funding for NAIS. This hearing is critical to blocking mandatory NAIS.

*ACTION: Please call and fax all members of the subcommittee (below). *

*1. When you call, ask to speak to the legislative aide for agriculture. Form a positive relationship with the aide. Become his or her source of knowledge for NAIS. Be RESPECTFUL and POLITE. Remember, who would the aide rather speak with, someone who is courteous or someone angry and resentful?*

*2. **Please send this to everyone you know, ESPECIALLY to people in the states with members on the subcommittee. Members need to hear from their constituents–the people who vote them into office.*

*If you are in one of these states, please arrange a meeting with the district representative of the Congressman. That makes a big difference. We need to be real people to the legislators, so that when they think “farm” or “food” they think of us, not Monsanto, Cargill, Tyson, etc…*
