On Tuesday, the New Hampshire Environment and Agriculture Committee heard testimony concerning House Bill 110, which would require those who record cruelty to livestock to submit these recordings to the police.  The New Hampshire Civil Liberties Union, along with several state and federal animal welfare groups, opposes this bill. HB110 imposes an “Ag-Gag” that infringes on the right to freedom of expression and the right against self-incrimination of both animal rights advocates and New Hampshire farmers.

The New Hampshire Civil Liberties Union submitted testimony on Tuesday, outlining the civil liberty implications of HB110, and urged the Committee to explore other means of combating livestock ill-treatment. Click here to read the testimony submitted.
