On Tuesday, the Senate Interior Appropriations Subcommittee will vote on the Fiscal Year 2019 Interior spending bill. The full Senate Appropriations Committee vote will take place on Thursday.
These votes could not be more important!
Last week, the House Appropriations Committee passed the devastating Stewart Amendment to authorize the permanent sterilization of entire wild horse and burro herds.
We must now stop this in the Senate.
The Stewart Amendment put a target on every wild horse and burro herd in the West by authorizing the BLM to “manage any group of wild horses or burros as a non-reproducing or single sex herd, in whole or in part, through chemical or surgical sterilization.”
This will be the beginning of the end of America’s wild free-roaming herds!
p.s. The Subcommittee hearing will take place at 9:30 a.m. EST on Tuesday June 12. You can watch the live webcast here.
The full committee hearing will take place at 10:30 a.m. on Thursday June 14. You can watch the live webcast here.
