Petition NJ Legislation to Post Bill for Override - NJ Gov. Chris Christie's veto of S.1921

This bill would have banned the cruel practice of confining pigs in gestation crates.  The bill would have prevented using  any confinement method preventing pigs from turning around or laying down.  Gestation crates are cruel and inhumane.  Yet Governor Chris Christie vetoed the passed bill.
The bill, S. 1921, passed the state Assembly by a vote of 60 to 5 and the state Senate by a vote of 29 to 4 in May. It had overwhelming support by  both Democrats and Republicans.  89 percent of voters 
were in favor of Christie signing the measure into law.

Please sign this petition.  Also if you have a moment a phone call to the Senate President would help greatly!  His information is: 856-251-9801 or 856-339-0808.  Email option:
