    Copy-pasting from my local paper:

    Issue 2 would require the state to establish an Ohio Livestock Care Standards Board which would be charged with implementing standards of care for livestock and poultry. Other areas the board would be responsible for would include to maintain food safety, encourage locally grown and raised food, and protect Ohio farms and families.

    The board would be comprised of thirteen Ohio resident members, which would include representation of Ohio family farms. farming organizations, food safety experts, veterinarians, consumers, the dean of the agriculture department at an Ohio college or university and a county humane society representative.



    From a cursory read, this seems like a good thing, no? I admit that my research is limited to reading this blurb in the paper though.
    What do y'all think, yey or ney?
