Iowa is trying to pass a bill similar to the one in Utah.
They want to ban animal activists from filming the animal abuse that happens inside of animal farm factories.
Senator Joe Seng, is siding with the abusers because he wants to stop workers who lie on their applications just to be able to get into the facilitates and film the abuse.
"The bill is mainly aimed at the people that are going in there to take down that business as far as being vegan, or wanting to find animal abuse or produce animal abuse within the chambers of the business."
Good thing there is a good guy in this battle against animal abusers.
Senator Jack Hatch said:
"It's trying to solve a problem that doesn't exist yet in Iowa. They are trying to prevent it from happening.
What happens if it's not in the ag industry, but you want to do it in the nursing home industry, in the hospital industry or the school industry, that's when their argument falls apart."
Lawmakers feel that the law will become law with the support of Governor Terry Branstad.
We really hope the governor gets some sense into him by the end of the week when he's due to sign the law!
