The PAST ACT has strong bipartisan support and is endorsed by the American Horse Council and the American Veterinary Medical Association.
* For certain purposes, the total number of Congressman could be argued as #298 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.
