California's foie gras legislation passed the Assembly floor by a wide margin but we need citizens to take action now and call the governor to be sure he signs it into law.
SB 1520

If you've been waiting for an update on California's foie gras legislation, you'll be happy to hear that it has passed the Assembly floor by a wide margin! This is history in the making--though several countries around the world have banned force-feeding fowl, this is the first time this type of legislation has made it this far in the U. S. Again, the bill makes the practice of force-feeding ducks and geese illegal by 2012, and
it also bans the sale of the cruel product!! Let's make sure it goes all the way!

Contact Gov. Schwarzenegger and tell him it's time to add California to the growing list of governments that ban force-feeding.
