WASHINGTON, DC – Representative Bob Latta (R-OH), four term Congressman and member of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, is now co-sponsoring the PAST ACT (Prevent All Soring Tactics Act).
Latta becomes the 265th Representative of 435 Congressmen to co-sponsor the measure which is 61% of the United States House of Representatives.
Momentum is building for a vote on the House Floor which will come soon.
The PAST ACT will remove the pads and chains, eliminate the corrupt HIOs and make horse soring a federal felony. A compromise of 3 pounds is expected to be reached on the weight of the shoe which will allow pleasure classes to continue in the show ring.
