Update on Connecticut Foie Gras Battle

Email from Ariane Daguin of D'Artagnan

Dear Chef,
Please protect the right to eat and farm foie gras in Connecticut. State Representative Diana Urban has introduced a bill (Proposed Bill Number 6866) that would ban both the sale and production of foie gras in Connecticut.

We need your help. The State's Joint Committee on Environment will be holding a hearing on the ban this coming Wednesday, February 21. Please take a few minutes to call your State Representative and State Senator

(See contact info below - MT).

Thanks a lot,
Ariane



The hearing will be held tomorrow Wednesday, February 21st, in the Legislative Office Building at 300 Capitol Avenue in Hartford. Directions can be found HERE. We do not know the room number of the hearing, but it should be available at the Legislative Office Building on Wednesday when you arrive.

The hearing begins at 10:15 a.m. and will cover 20 bills being considered by the Environment Committee. We expect that the foie gras issue will generate much more interest than any of the other bills up for consideration. People testify in the order that they sign up to testify that day. As a result, the testimony will skip around from bill to bill depending upon the witness.
