WASHINGTON, DC ““ Representative Tim Ryan (D-OH) today co-sponsored the PAST ACT (Prevent All Soring Tactics Act).
A rank and file Democrat, Congressman Ryan became the youngest member of Congress when he was elected in 2003 at the age of 29. His 13th District is Southeast of Cleveland, Ohio, and includes the cities of Akron and Youngstown. He serves on the Armed Services Committee and the Budget Committee.
Ryan becomes the 281st Representative of 435 Congressmen to co-sponsor the measure which is 65% of the United States House of Representatives.
The PAST ACT will remove the pads and chains, eliminate the corrupt HIOs and make horse soring a federal felony.
America is solidly behind the PAST ACT.
Nephew Eugene thinks 65% is a landslide.
* For certain purposes, the total number of Congressman could be argued as #282 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.
