Proponents say it provides needed protections to farm operations and opponents say this is a thinly-veiled attempt to prevent needed public scrutiny. Guests will include Nathan Runkle of Mercy for Animals and Randy Parker of the Utah Farm Bureau.

We welcome your emails, comments and calls during our debate.
