WASHINGTON, DC  ““  Conservative  Texas Republican Representatives  Bill Flores (R-TX)  and  Blake Farenthold (R-TX),  are now co-sponsoring the  PAST ACT  (Prevent All Soring Tactics Act).   There are now 106 Republicans backing the proposed legislation.

REPRESENTATIVE BILL FLORES (R-TX)

REPRESENTATIVE BLAKE FARENTHOLD (R-TX)

Flores becomes the 285th and Farenthold the 286th   Representatives of 435 Congressmen to co-sponsor the measure which equals  66%  of the United States House of Representatives.

Flores represents Waco and College Station, Texas,  where Texas A. & M. University is located. Elected to Congress in 2011, he is a former Oil and Gas Exploration CEO.

Elected in 2011,   Farenthold represents cities along the Texas coast including Corpus Christi.  He is a member of the Tea Party Caucus and is a former radio disc jockey and an attorney.

The  PAST ACT  has strong  bipartisan  support.  It is endorsed by the American Horse Council and the  American Veterinary Medical Association.

Momentum is building for a vote on the House Floor.

The  PAST ACT  will remove the pads and chains, eliminate the corrupt HIOs and make horse soring a federal felony.

Nephew Eugene says Friday,  May 30, 2014 is a marvelous day for the PAST ACT.

* For certain purposes, the total number of Congressman could be argued as #287 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.
