This just in from Liberty Ark Coalition:
Texas: Texas HB 637 would amend the existing statute that authorized implementation of NAIS, removing the agency’s authority to implement a mandatory program. HB 637 also provides important protections for any voluntary program: (1) it includes a non-discrimination clause; (2) it requires full disclosure and informed consent before anyone can be signed up; and (3) it allows people to withdraw at any time and have their information deleted. A committee hearing is expected to occur within a few weeks.
Get educated on this ASAP and sign up to fight the National Animal Identification System before Big Brother requires you to electronically tag your pet rabbit (and all other “farm” animals)! The implications go far beyond just animal tracking. Those involved in pushing NAIS are trying to implement it ‘under the radar’, so it will be a ‘done deal’ before the public at large knows they have lost their rights!
