BIG PUSH FOR COSPONSORS ON KEY BILLS
Each year The HSUS and Fund For Animals, in conjunction with other animal protection groups, produce the Humane Scorecard to help readers gauge the support or opposition of Members of Congress on key animal protection issues. This week, The HSUS sent a letter to the House of Representatives outlining the issues we anticipate counting on the 2004 scorecard. In addition to several votes that have already been recorded and others that may occur before Congress adjourns, the scorecard will credit Members who cosponsor bills on the following three subjects:
- Animal Fighting, HR 1532 / HR 4264 – to create felony level penalties for federal animal fighting crimes.
- Horse Slaughter, HR 857 – to ban the sale of horses and horse meat for human consumption.
- Antifreeze Safety, HR 1563 – to require inclusion of a bittering agent in antifreeze to prevent poisoning of pets, wildlife and children.
WHAT YOU CAN DO:Please contact your U.S. Representative and ask him or her to join as a cosponsor of these important bills if s/he hasn’t already done so. You might mention that you use the Humane Scorecard to help assess how your legislators stand on key animal protection issues and you know these cosponsorships will be counted in 2004. To contact your U.S. Representative, call the congressional switchboard at 202-224-3121. If you need locate your U.S. Rep, visit the Fund for Animals’ website or call The HSUS at (202) 955-3668.
