NEWS and HOW YOU CAN HELP - HPA Amendment To Be Reintroduced - ACT NOW
From what I'm learning through the grapevine, it looks like HR 6388 is going to be reintroduced around March 1. It might receive a new number as well.
But here's the clincher: THE BAD GUYS KNOW THIS AND WILL BE FLOODING THEIR LETTERS IN. WE MUST ACT, and we must start NOW.
I cannot stress how important it is that we start acting. The sorers, burners, cheaters, and liars are already rallying their troops to fight this. They are ready with their checkbooks handy and their dirty words and nasty lies. WE ARE BETTER THAN THEM. We have the facts, we have the truth. We need to make others aware of this.
First, please contact your Congress persons and make them aware of HR 6388. Here are steps to do so.
House: www.house.gov - use the Find Your Representative search in the upper right corner.
Senate: www.senate.gov - see above instructions.
To be able to contact Congress persons in the states where it matters most (TN, KY, etc.) you will need a local zip code. Use this link and enter the city and state the Congress person is in: http://www.melissadata.com/lookups/zipcityphone.asp
Contact Congressman Whitfield and voice your support: http://whitfield.house.gov/
POPVOX page: http://www.popvox.com/bills/us/112/hr6388
REMEMBER: WRITE YOUR OWN LETTERS! You may use information from www.forthetwh.com to back up the facts. Link to the McConnell video from YouTube: http://youtu.be/gxVlxT_x-f0 And you can even follow up your letter or email with a phone call.
And tell your friends, especially those who are into animal advocacy. Send them a link to this page so they can also help.
We are going to have some new initiatives through this blog and our Facebook group to get more attention toward the new amendment, so please stay tuned to learn how you can help. WE CAN WIN THIS! We can tell the government we need to see this change, and they will listen! THANK YOU for supporting the horse!
