The following is from the American Horse Council:
Tell Your Senators to Make History! Push PAST Act Over the Finish Line!
Before breaking for the August recess, the U.S. House of Representatives adopted the Sen. Joseph Tydings Memorial Prevent All Soring Tactics (PAST) Act of 2019 (H.R. 693) by a vote of 333 to 96. In the wake of this historic vote, the horse industry is focusing efforts on the Senate, where there is an opportunity to gain a “super-majority” of cosponsors for the senate version of the bill (S. 1007), championed by Sens. Mike Crapo (R-ID) and Mark Warner (D-VA). During August, AHC members sent 200 letters to the Senate urging support for this important bill. You can put even more horsepower in the PAST Act by sending a letter to your senators today!
