WASHINGTON, DC – The PAST ACT‘s future will be decided in the next six legislative days.
The following persons will be the major players in this drama:
U. S. REPRESENTATIVE ED WHITFIELD (R-KY)
U.S. HOUSE SPEAKER JOHN BOEHNER (R-OH)
U.S. HOUSE MAJORITY LEADER KEVIN MCCARTHY (R-CA)
U.S. SENATE MAJORITY LEADER – HARRY REID
THIS GUY IN THE WHITE SHIRT WEARING SUNGLASSES
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.
THE TIME REMAINING:
So the stage is now set to see if the PAST ACT, a bipartisan bill to prevent cruelty to Tennessee Walking Horses backed by 70% of the U. S. House of Representatives, and 60 U. S. Senators, will finally be allowed a floor vote in the House and Senate of the United States Congress.
