To the editor:
People who care about animals across the state are waiting to see what Massachusetts senators do about bill S. 2232, a measure to help protect newborn calves and mother pigs from harsh confinement. I personally am looking to my senator, Stanley Rosenberg, to take action on this important bill; as an important leader in the chamber, Senator Rosenberg has the power to help prevent great cruelty to farm animals.
The session ends in a couple of weeks and with it dies this chance to help animals. It is crucial for Senator Rosenberg and other leaders to address this bill and negotiate its enactment as soon as they can. Both state residents and farm animals alike are counting on their attention to this important bill.
