AG STUDENTS PETITION TO DEFUND STUDENT PAPER

More than 1,000 people have signed a petition calling for agricultural students at Iowa State University to be exempt from paying fees that indirectly help fund the campus newspaper. The petition, started by ISU senior ag student Katlyn Kahler, was posted because articles critical of the treatment of pigs in slaughterhouses were published in the Iowa State Daily. Kahler said the paper refused to print her pro-agriculture response in the letter to the editor section, as well as other factual agriculture-related articles. (Des Moines Register)
