It’s now a done deal that the Humane Society of the United States is going to do what it takes to put a Prop 2-style initiative onto the Ohio state ballot this November. Wayne Pacelle has written a great blog entry full of background info. If you want a reminder of just how slimy agribusiness interests can be, Wayne’s piece is a must-read.
Now that the campaign is underway, the first step is to gather 403,000 signatures in the state. If you’re an Ohio resident, now’s a fantastic time to step up. HSUS has set up a website for people who want to volunteer or make a donation. Link.
