WASHINGTON, DC ““ U. S. Senator Charles “Chuck” Schumer (D-NY), is now co-sponsoring the PAST ACT(Prevent All Soring Tactics Act). Senator Schumer is Vice Chairman of the Democratic Caucus and is the third ranking person in the Democratic leadership in the U. S. Senate. Schumer served in the U. S. House for 18 years before being elected to the Senate in 1998. He has never lost an election.
Schumer has joined a remarkable bipartisan coalition of Republicans and Democrats determined “To Protect The Horses” from the sore Big Lick centered in Middle Tennessee and three other states, Kentucky, Mississippi and Alabama.
Schumer becomes the 52nd United States Senator to back the PAST ACT.
Just like the members of the Tennessee Walking Horse breed registry voting 63% in favor of the PAST ACT, now 60% of the United States Congress is lining up for passage of the PAST ACT.
Nephew Eugene says this lady from New York, organizer of the Sound Horse Conference and former President of FOSH was pleased with her Senator Charles “Chuck” Schumer coming on board “To Protect The Horses”.
The U.S. Senator Lamar #OUTOFTOUCH Alexander (R-TN) alternative bill so far has Alexander and two Senators from Kentucky co-sponsoring it. Senator Izakson (R-GA) is co-sponsoring both Alexander’s Bill and the PAST ACT.
By any measure, 52 – 4 (GA Senator on both bills) is a pretty lopsided score. That leaves 46 other Senators in play and all the PAST ACT needs is 7 more to make it a done deal in the Senate.
