The full House will vote on the FY13 Agriculture Appropriations bill next Tuesday, June 26. An amendment may be offered to strip language prohibiting the USDA from spending your tax dollars to inspect horse slaughter facilities. This language, recently approved by the House Appropriations Committee, defunding USDA inspections of horse slaughter facilities and supported by the overwhelming majority of Americans, is vital to protecting American horses. It is critical that you email or call TODAY and urge your Representative to strongly SUPPORT the Moran amendment to defund horse slaughter inspections.
