Lipinski Votes to Pass Bill Protecting Horses from Inhumane Slaughter


Lipinski Votes to Pass Bill Protecting Horses from Inhumane Slaughter
 

On Thursday September 7, 2006, the U.S. House of Representatives passed H.R. 503, which would prevent the slaughter of horses for human consumption overseas.  The vote on the Horse Protection Act was 263 to 146. 

Lipinski said, "Many of my constituents contacted me to express their support for this legislation, and I am pleased to be able to represent their views here in Washington.  I also opposed several amendments that would have effectively killed the legislation.  I supported H.R. 503 and will continue to encourage efforts to preserve the wellbeing of horses and other animals."
