Senator Ayotte attempting to Amend Agriculture Appropriations with the Past Act.



The Calvary Group released the following news release. 

Dear Members:
 
Senator Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) is attempting to attach the HSUS-driven P.A.S.T. Act as an amendment to the Agriculture Appropriations bill today.  
 
Please call members of the Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on Agriculture, Rural Development, and FDA ASAP!   
 
Please remind the Committee Members that the P.A.S.T. ACT will destroy JOBS, gives USDA too much power and more opportunity to abuse the rules, and sets a horrible precedent for the entire horse industry.
