The fur trappers have asked Senator Murkowski (R-AK) to submit an
amendment to S. 1731, the Agriculture, Conservation, and Rural
Enhancement Act of 2001, a.k.a. the Farm Bill. The amendments are to
authorize fur animals and products to be eligible for marketing
assistance for the promotion of fur in foreign countries under the
Foreign Market Development Cooperator Program. In other words, they want
tax dollars to be used to promote fur from both trappers and fur farms.
Please call, fax, and/or email your two U.S. Senators and ask them to
oppose this amendment.
This bill is currently on the Senate floor and
they hope to complete action soon so immediate attention is needed. You
can reach the offices of both your U.S. Senators by calling the Capitol
Switchboard at 202-224-3121.
