Take Action Now to Stop Horse Slaughter Amendment
In May, the House and Senate Appropriations committees reinstated a defacto ban on U.S. horse slaughter by including a provision to defund USDA horse slaughter inspections in their pending FY15 Agriculture Appropriations bills.
Now, in a last minute attempt to circumvent the ban, Congressman Markwayne Mullin (R-OK) has just offered an amendment to reinstate horse slaughter plant inspections. This amendment may be voted on next week by the full House of Representatives.
We must stop this horse slaughter amendment. Please take one minute to contact your Congressperson today!
