Federal Petitions - 112th Congress, 2011-2012
Rescind swine ISO, an Invasive Species Order (ISO) issued by the Michigan Department of Natural Resources (DNR) that infringes upon private property rights, criminalizes swine pet owners, threatens the livelihoods of small family farms and denies consumer freedom to obtain the pork of their choice. Send a FAX asking Michigan Governor Rick Snyder to order DNR to rescind the ISO. Even better, follow up with a phone call to the governor's office at 517-335-7858.
