Action Alert: Urge Senators to Support Local Meat Processing

Author(s): 
Chrys Ostrander
WSDA PRIMEThe PRIME Act currently making its way through Congress provides flexibility to address the need for more small-scale meat processing. It would allow any state to permit producers to sell meat processed at a custom slaughterhouse within that state.
 
A coalition of farmers and non-profit organizations is sending a letter to all Senators in support of the bill. As of July 20 there are over 100 nonprofits and 500 farms/ranches signed on.
 
To support the bill's passage, call both Senators. Follow up by sending the staffers a copy of the sign-on letter. 
 
Here's the sign-on letter:
