==This Petition Temporarily Disabled - DO NOT USE NOW==

This is a FREE online FAX petition service. The U.S. House is debating its version of the Farm Bill (H.R. 1947). Over 200 amendments have been introduced, including several to protect farmers from burdensome food safety regulations and prevent the unauthorized release of genetically modified crops.

Please follow up with a phone call and ask your U.S. Representative to support these amendments:

1. Amendment #214 by Benishek to protect farmers from unnecessarily burdensome regulations;

2. Amendment #115 by Kaptur to prevent large companies from retaliating against livestock and poultry producers who speak out about unfairness in the marketplace;

3. Amendment #136 by Lowey to address contamination by genetically engineered crops; and

4. Amendment #176 by Pingree to support small-scale meat processors who are vital to restoring our local food systems.
