The House could vote next week to send a farmers‘ rights bill to Governor Pence‘s desk.
The House Agriculture Committee gave a 12-1 endorsement to the bill that declares farmers have a right to use any "generally accepted" farming practices.
Farm groups say the bill is needed to protect the industry from attack by environmental and animal-rights activists.
