Tell the CA State Senate You Support the Ban on Non-therapeutic
Take Action

Dear Teleosis ,

Ask Your Senator to Vote YES on S.B.416!


Ask your Senator to vote YES on S.B.416
pHBsR57XbnEmsbh5l%2F>  to help prevent our water from being contaminated
with antibiotics and harmful bacteria. 

You can help protect both our water and food resources in California by
asking your state Senator to support S.B. 416. S.B. 416, which would ban
the practice of using important human antibiotics in livestock and
poultry, recently passed out of two committees. The bill now has to pass
out of the entire Senate by June 5th.  We need your help to make this
happen!  Can you tell your Senator that you support S.B.416?

By prohibiting livestock and poultry producers from feeding antibiotics
to healthy animals, S.B.416 would reduce the large amounts of
antibiotics that enter our waterways and groundwater via factory farm
run-off and sludge. We cannot afford to compromise the quality and
safety of our water supply by allowing the inappropriate use of
antibiotics in livestock and poultry. 

The opponents of this bill are powerful, so we need your help to make
sure your Senator is informed with the right information.  Let you
Senator know today that you want him or her to vote in favor of

Thanks for taking action,
