Groups write to Senators to oppose secrecy provisions in the 2007 Farm Bill

Twenty-eight groups sent a letter to Senators to express opposition to the non-disclosure provisions (Sec. 10305 of the Livestock Title) in the 2007 Farm Bill approved by the Senate Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry Committee on October 25, 2007. The language would create an unnecessary bar to public disclosure and use or publication of information related to the National Animal Identification System (NAIS).
