The Arkansas Senate Judiciary Committee has tabled a bill aimed at outlawing undercover investigations of farms.
The bill would make it a misdemeanor to videotape livestock and poultry operations without permission from the owner. It would also make it illegal to apply for a job at a farm under false pretenses in order to gain access to the property. The committee also tabled a bill outlawing private investigations of animal cruelty.
Republican Sen. Jeremy Hutchinson, who sponsored the bill, told the Associated Press he deferred action on both measures on January 16 because he didn't realize how complicated the issue was.
