Blackburn Legislation Adds Co-Sponsors



H.R. 4098, the Horse Protection Amendments Act, introduced by Congressman Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) has added two co-sponsors.  Representatives Mick Mulvaney (R-SC) and Candice Miller (R-MI) were added on March 25th and 26th respectively.

Mulvaney and Miller join the original nine co-sponsors of the bill which included all of the Republican members from Tennessee, Representatives Hal Rogers (R-KY) and Andy Barr (R-KY), and Nick Rahall (D-WV).  The Horse Protection Amendments Act would employ objective, scientific-based testing to eliminate illegal soring of Tennessee Walking Horses.  The legislation would also put in place a single, independent Horse Industry Organization (HIO) to enforce the Horse Protection Act.

Both Mulvaney and Miller are also co-sponsors of H.R. 1518, the PAST Act introduced by Congressman Ed Whitfield.  Miller signed on as a co-sponsor of both bills on the same day.
