WASHINGTON, DC ““ Representative Richard Hudson (R-NC), elected in 2013, is now co-sponsoring the PAST ACT (Prevent All Soring Tactics Act).
Hudson is a rock solid conservative, and serves on House Committees related to agriculture. The following Map tells the story as Democratic Senator Kay Hagan and rock rib conservative Republican Richard Hudson, BOTH NORTH CAROLINIANS co-sponsor the PAST ACT.
Hudson becomes the 279th Representative of 435 Congressmen to co-sponsor the measure which is 64%+ of the United States House of Representatives.
He is the 102nd Republican to co-sponsor the law.
No Congressmen have chosen to co-sponsor Representative Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) alternative bill since it was introduced.
The PAST ACT will remove the pads and chains, eliminate the corrupt HIOs and make horse soring a federal felony.
Nephew Eugene thinks North Carolina’s elected officials differ from TWHBEA Executive Committee member Tom “I AM A PROUD HPA VIOLATOR” Kakassy opposing the PAST against the expressed will, landslide 63%, of the members of the Tennessee Walking Horse breed registry.
* For certain purposes, the total number of Congressman could be argued as #280 due to Congressman Bill Young (R-FL) having co-sponsored the PAST ACT prior to his death, and now his successor Congressman David Jolly (R-FL) has also co-sponsored the PAST ACT.
