An overwhelming 2/3rds – 67% ““ of the U. S. House of Representatives now sponsors the PAST ACT.
Richmond becomes the 291st Representatives of 435 Congressmen to co-sponsor the measure which equals 67% of the United States House of Representatives.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 those TWHBEA members were right on the money when they voted 63% landslide for passage of the PAST ACT. Right now the U. S. House is 67% because of hard work by people such as Jane Lutz who have persisted and persisted until it finally happens.
* For certain purposes, the total number of Congressman could be argued as #292 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.
