WASHINGTON, DC ““ Democrat Representative G. K. Butterfield (D-NC) is now co-sponsoring the PAST ACT (Prevent All Soring Tactics Act).
Butterfield becomes the 298th Representative to back the proposed legislation.
Representative Butterfield is a former NC Judge before being elected to Congress in 2004. He is of mixed race ancestry and is a member of the Black Caucus. He serves on the House Energy and Commerce Committee. He is one of eight Chief Deputy Democratic Whips.
Now 69% of the U. S. House of Representatives co-sponsors the PAST ACT.
The PAST ACT has strong bipartisan support and is endorsed by the American Horse Council and the AVMA (American Veterinary Medical Association).
Dr. Whitney Miller, DVM explains why AVMA backs the PAST ACT, and wants nothing to do with the Blackburn/Alexander-McConnell Alternatives.
Nephew Eugene thinks, as Rep. Schakowsky (D-IL) predicted, there will be 300 members of the U. S. House co-sponsoring the PAST ACT.
