WASHINGTON, DC – On the eve of what certainly portends to be a momentous day, some of the reports include:
- ABC Nightline will cover the Hearing.
- Huffington Post will, too.
- Representative Marsha Blackburn will earn her $70,000,00 Celebration Reception money and introduce an alternative Bill.
- Mickey McCormick will bring some Trainer Boyz up to sit in on the affair.
- There are only 70 chairs for persons attending in the Hearing Room and all are expected to be filled.
- Every individual State chapter of the American Veterinary Medical Association has endorsed the HR 1518 to remove the pads and chains.
