House Passes Bill Targeting Animal Rights Terrorism

The U.S. House of Representatives passed the Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act this week, which strengthens laws dealing with criminal acts against animal enterprises, including farms, meat processors and animal research facilities. The bill, which provides much needed enhancements to the Animal Enterprise Protection Act of 1992, is expected to be signed by the President.

The Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act closes loopholes in the previous act by penalizing attacks against tertiary targets. It also addresses key concerns of law enforcement who have waged an uphill battle to prevent, investigate and prosecute acts of animal rights terrorism.

The Act was passed by unanimous consent by the U.S. Senate on September 30.
