Noted. Great bill, but it will probably die in the house since the Repugs are not advocates of the enviroment or animals.

This is good news. I hope it passes. I have not been able to thank Senator Landrieu for some time; she is not my fav senator by a long stretch. But, I am behind her on this one. The cruelty spent on this dear animals is appalling. Thanks, Simone.

This bill is so important and I do hope it passes. I sincerely applaud Mary Landreau and Lindsay Graham for bringing this important legislation to the fore. I hope the Republicans with their hearts of stone will do an about face and pass Against Horse Slaughter Prevention Act of 2011 SB1176. Just maybe some of the Repugs have horses they love and will acknowledge this is the right thing to do.

Thanks, noted, there’s no real argument against it, unless (1) horse meat is your business, or (2) you like horse meat (doesn't even sound right to write).
