PSHA Chairman Applauds Congress
Thursday, January 12, 2017
Performance Show Horse Association (PSHA) Chairman, Terry Dotson, recently sent a letter to several House Republicans, including Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI). Dotson thanked the leadership for passage of the Midnight Rules Relief Act and the REINS Act, both of which would limit the effect of the regulatory agenda of the Obama Administration.
The recently finalized United States Department of Agriculture rule, which would devastate the show horse industry, is just one example of the current administration’s efforts to circumvent Congress and legislate through rule making.
Chairman Dotson points out in his letter the influence of the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) on the USDA and how similar the rule proposed by USDA is to the HSUS written legislation that Congress has chosen not to act on in the last two sessions. HSUS lobbied hard in the final hours leading up to the vote on the Midnight Rules Relief Act and REINS Act, urging members to vote against the two bills.
