On July 23, the U.S. House Subcommittee on Consumer Protection and Commerce met for a mark-up on two important bills: the SAFE Act (to end horse slaughter) and the PAST Act (to end horse soring).
Both of these bills passed and will proceed to the next phase.
The SAFE Act and PAST Act will next go to the full U.S. House Energy and Commerce Committee. The hearing date has yet to be scheduled.
It’s critical that you contact your U.S. representative and two U.S. senators to see if they are cosponsors of the SAFE Act and PAST Act.
If they are not cosponsors, please contact them today and urge them to please join as a cosponsor and to vote “YES” on the SAFE Act and PAST Act to protect America’s equines.
