Call to Action on H.R. 961
Hey there Golden State-ers.
Are you ready to take part on behalf of horses and help get us the necessary cosponsors to blast H.R. 961, The SAFE Act of 2019, out of Committee?
When The SAFE Act becomes law it will totally abolish the practice of slaughtering horses for human consumption. Imagine the impact on the lives of our Quarter Horses (America’s Horse), Thoroughbreds and Wild Horses & Burros. There is so very much at stake.
Magic Number — 290
Here’s what we need to do.
We need a minimum of 290 to take advantage of the newly instituted Consensus Calendar Rule which will move the Bill onto the House Floor for debate and vote.
As of this writing, H.R. 961 has 149 cosponsors.
Below are all 53 U.S. Representatives from the State of California. Those who have cosponsored are marked with a big YES.
If they have not cosponsored, you know what to do. For those new to the process, here’s a link that will take you through it right here on Tuesday’s Horse.
Please note that this is a bipartisan issue.
