A recent win in the fight against animal cruelty, from Senator Patrick Leahy

Knowing your interest in eliminating equine cruelty and abuse, I wanted to share with you a recent advance in Congress in this fight.

On January 16, the Senate passed a sweeping spending bill to fund the government through September, eliminating the threat of another government shutdown. I am pleased to inform you that this omnibus spending bill includes a provision I supported that blocks the United States Department of Agriculture from inspecting horse slaughter plants. This House and Senate approved provision will reinstate the ban on federal funding for facilities engaged in the sale or slaughter of horses for human consumption.

In these difficult fiscal times, it is crucial we do not waste limited taxpayer resources on programs that extend and promote animal cruelty. Please know I will continue to support the humane treatment of all animals and I look forward to the passage and enactment of this important animal welfare provision.

Thank you for your interest and engagement in this issue.

Sincerely,

PATRICK LEAHY
United States Senator

      I’ll never understand how people can be so cruel, and so easily! Evil is what it is.
