Several state legislatures have now declined to advance bills that are designed to stop undercover investigations on farms.
California is the latest example - where the author of a bill that would have limited undercover farm animal abuse investigations pulled the measure just hours before a committee vote. Among other things - the legislation would have required anyone collecting evidence of abuse to turn it over to law enforcement within 48 hours.
While Tennessee is reportedly close to passing a similar bill - measures in Arkansas, Wyoming and Indiana have failed to advance in recent weeks.
