No Doubt Bassist Tony Kanal says that a proposed ban on videotaping activity inside Indiana’s farms and factories would prevent activists from uncovering abusive measures taken against animals.

Earlier this week, Kanal, who grew up in Indiana, wrote a letter to Republican House Speaker Brian Bosma saying that the bill serves to threaten the rights of animals by potentially creating environments detrimental to their overall well being.

On Thursday, the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals circulated Kanal’s letter but only time will tell if his efforts will be enough to stop the bill, which was approved 30-20 this week by the Senate.

The bill was slightly altered by the Senate; allowing videos of abuse to be admissible as long as the relative evidence was turned over to authorities within 48 hours of when the footage was gathered.

The bill must now meet the approval of the House.
