Animal Ag Alliance Concerned About Efforts To Repeal Anti Terrorism Law

Animal Ag Alliance Concerned About Efforts To Repeal Anti Terrorism Law

The New York City Bar Association is expected to vote today on a measure to encourage the ABA to ask Congress to repeal the Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act.  Animal Agriculture Alliance President and CEO Kay Johnson Smith says that’s concerning because that law protects many from violent acts conducted by animal rights groups.

Johnson Smith says just recently some violent acts are still popping up so without the law being in place, the consequences could be severe.

Those in the New York City Bar association pushing for repeal say AETA includes overly broad and unconstitutional restrictions on first amendment rights. Johnson Smith says while her group doesn’t lobby is sending a letter to the New York Bar Association and ABA urging for support of the current law.
