The PAST ACT  is set up for a final push to victory through the steadfast efforts of the      All American Walking Horse Alliance and the Sound Horse Advocates who comprise its members.  Their efforts have obtained the crucial last two U. S. Senators Claire McCaskill (D-MO) and Sherrod Brown (D-OH) coming on board.

And U. S. Representative Dave Brat (R-VA) is expected to “Officially” co-sponsor the PAST ACT today,  after publicly announcing his intention to do so on November 21, 2014.    Brat’s co-sponsorship will provide the 117th Republican vote, and satisfy the “Hastert Rule” that a Bill has to have a “majority of the majority” before it can received a vote on the U. S. House Floor.
