FAST To Provide Assistance With Rulemaking Responses



The Foundation for the Advancement and Support of the Tennessee Walking Show Horse (FAST) will host a “help desk” on Wednesday July 20, 2011.  The help desk will assist anyone who needs aid in filing a response to the USDA’s proposed amendment to the Federal Regulations that would require mandatory penalties.

FAST will host the help day from 10:00AM-3:00PM at the SHOW HIO office in Shelbyville, Tenn.  The SHOW office is located at 1021 Colloredo Blvd.  You can also call the SHOW office for assistance at 931-684-9506.

"We believe the mandatory penalties proposed by the USDA are not only unconstitutional but are designed to undermine the very existence of our show horse.  Everyone who supports the Tennessee Walking Show Horse, or if your livelihood is touched in any way by the show horse, you should make your opposition to this proposal known. Please stop by or call and let our volunteers assist in getting your response filed," said FAST President Mike Inman. 

FAST will have access to computers, bullet points to help with responses and background information on the filing in the Federal Register, the USDA press release and responses filed by other organizations.  Volunteers will be in attendance to help answer questions and provide any additional data needed.  A light lunch will be sponsored by FAST.

FAST is a 501 (c)3 organization that’s mission is to promote and preserve the Tennessee Walking Show Horse.  All donations are tax deductible and are put to immediate use in the industry.  For more information or to make a donation visit FAST online at www.FASTWalkingShowHorse.org
