SQ777 Defeated by Lying

    There is no nicer way to put it.  The Right to Farm law was defeated by out of state environmental activists and animal rights activists spending a lot of money.  Nearly a million dollars were raised by two dark money groups that don't have to disclose their donors and that money was spent on advertising that claimed that farmers and ranchers could poison the land and air with no accountability despite the fact that all existing law remained in place.

  SQ 777 was another state question that should have never been sent to a vote of the people because frankly it wasn't necessary other than to make it harder to repeal.  Over 92% of the House voted for the state question and 86% of the Senate voted to put the measure on the ballot.
