FROM THE GREAT STATE OF KANSAS, U.S. REPRESENTATIVE TIM HUELSKAMP (R-KS) BECOMES 305TH CONGRESSMAN TO CO-SPONSOR THE PAST ACT 306 COUNTING CONGRESSMAN ED WHITFIELD (R-KY)

WASHINGTON, DC  ““ Republican  Representative Tim Huelskamp (R-KS)  is now co-sponsoring the  PAST ACT  (Prevent All Soring Tactics Act).

TIM HUELSKAMP (R-KS)

U. S REPRESENTATIVE TIM HUELSKAMP (R-KS)

Huelskamp becomes the 305th  Representative to co-sponsor the proposed legislation. With Representative Ed  Whitfield (R-KY),  the number is  306.

Congressman Huelskamp becomes the  116th  Republican (including Congressman Whitfield) to sponsor/co-sponsor the  PAST ACT leaving just one more Republican Congressmen necessary to reach the 117 required to satisfy the Hastert Rule.

The 46 year old Huelskamp is a Tea Party Republican who took office in January 2011.

With the addition of Huelskamp, the entire Kansas U. S. House delegation now co-sponsors the PAST ACT.

The continuing effect of the June 18, 2014  “WALK ON WASHINGTON”  rally by the        All American Walking Horse Alliance which brought the plight of the abused Tennessee Walking Horse to the steps of the U. S. Capitol was a key factor in Huelskamp coming on board to co-sponsor the bill.
