CA bill could become first in nation to curb antibiotic use for livestock, so why aren’t environmentalists happy?

SB 835, sponsored by Sen. Jerry Hill (D-San Mateo), would ban the use of certain drugs in cattle and poultry. It would also require a prescription from a veterinarian before an antibiotic could be obtained. It also bans the use of drugs to fatten animals used for food.
