Support the Moran Amendment to stop USDA funding for the slaughter of horses on US soil by contacting your State’s member of the US Full House Committee on Appropriations

Rep. James Moran (D-8-VA) is proposing an Amendment to the Full House Committee for the protection of America's horses. The House Appropriations Committee will consider Moran's Amendment Re the FY13 Agriculture Appropriations bill on Tuesday June 19, 2012, and if passed, will stop USDA funding for the slaughter of horses on US soil.

Last fall, 2011, the Congress and the President ended the de-funding, making it legal to slaughter horses for human consumption in the U.S. once again. Until then horse slaughter for human consumption had been illegal in the U.S. since 2007.
