Senator Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) Defies Senate Majority Leader Sen. Mitch McConnell Asking AG SEC Tom Vilsack To Deny 60 Day Extension, And Finalize Regulation To Abolish “Big Lick” Animal Cruelty

Washington, DC – On September 6, 2016,    U. S Senator Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) and   U. S. Senator Mark Warner (D-VA) urged Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack to not extend the Comment period,  and to expeditiously finalize the proposed Federal Regulation to the Horse Protection Act which will abolish “Big Lick” Animal Cruelty.

Senator Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) has refused to endorse Republican Presidenntial nominee Donald J. Trump,  although she did say she would vote for him. In urging the US AG SEC to not grant a 60 day extension of the Comment period,  Senator Ayotte is crossing U. S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) who has urged a 60 day extension of the Comment period for the proposed Federal Regulation to the Horse Protection Act.

Senator McConnell has been on the “Big Lick” payroll since 1988.

A 60 day extension would kill any chances of the Regulation being finalized.

On another note,  former U. S. Rep Ed Whitfield (R-KY) who resigned from the U. S. Congress on September 6, 2016,  before doing so,  filed a letter on August 24, 2016,  with the USDA AG SEC Tom Vilsack:

REPRESENTATIVE ED WHITFIELD (R-KY)

Nephew Eugene says it was no skin off Senator Warner’s nose to sign the letter,  but Senator Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) is an entirely different situation.  She deserves much praise for being a “Profile in Courage”.
