Quite honestly, I had lost all faith in the Tennessee Republican Party until Burchett cast his vote in support of the PAST Act. He is a true American hero, with real guts…”

— Marty Irby, executive director at Animal Wellness Action

KNOXVILLE, TENNESSEE, USA, August 30, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The U.S. House of Representatives recently passed the Prevent All Soring Tactics (PAST) Act, H.R. 693, by a vote of 333 to 96. U.S. Rep. Tim Burchett (R-Knoxville) joined Reps. Steve Cohen, and Jim Cooper in a courageous vote for the measure that’s long been opposed by members of the pro-soring coalition such as Reps. Scott DesJarlais, and Senators Marsha Blackburn and Lamar Alexander.

The PAST Act seeks to strengthen the Horse Protection Act and end the torturous, painful practice of soring Tennessee Walking, Racking, and Spotted Saddle Horses. Soring, the intentional infliction of pain to horses' front limbs by applying caustic chemicals such as mustard oil or kerosene or inserting sharp objects into the horses' hooves to create an exaggerated gait known as the "Big Lick,” has plagued the equine world for six decades. The Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration in Shelbyville, Tennessee is set crown a “Big Lick” World Grand Champion on Saturday night.

“We applaud Rep. Tim Burchett for his courageous vote to end the abusive practice of soring that runs rampant in Tennessee,” said Marty Irby, executive director at Animal Wellness Action, lifelong Republican, and a past president of the Tennessee Walking Horse Breeders’ & Exhibitors’ Association. “Quite honestly, I had lost all faith in the Tennessee Republican Party until Burchett cast his vote in support of the PAST Act. He is a true American hero, with real guts, and both the Tennessee Walking Horse and the great State of Tennessee are fortunate to have Burchett working to end the abuse that has marred the breed and the state for six decades.”

“Timing is ripe, and the majority of Americans want to see Congress work to protect these iconic American horses upon whose backs our country was built upon,” said Animal Wellness Advocate Priscilla Presley. “U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell should swiftly schedule a vote on the PAST Act, and execute the will of the American people, and I call on him to do so!”

“The bottom line is you are either for animal cruelty, or you are against it,” said Rep. Ted Yoho (R-FL), lead Republican sponsor of the House PAST Act.

“I support the humane treatment of all animals and remain committed to ending the cruel practice of soring,” said Senator Mike Crapo (R-ID), lead Republican sponsor of the PAST Act in the U.S. Senate. “I appreciate the House’s movement on the PAST Act. I will continue to work with my colleagues in the Senate to see that the legislation moves in the Senate and that current animal welfare laws are enforced.”

The PAST Act would ban the use of painful large stacked shoes and ankle chains and would also eliminate the existing system of self-regulation by the industry and toughen penalties for violators of the Horse Protection Act. It’s supported by Animal Wellness Action, the American Horse Council, American Veterinary Medical Association, American Association of Equine Practitioners, United States Equestrian Federation, National Sheriff’s Association, the American Quarter Horse Association, American Saddlebred Association and Tennessee Veterinary Medical Association.

To prevent cruelty, we promote enacting good public policies and we work to enforce those policies. To enact good laws, we must elect good lawmakers, and that’s why we remind voters which candidates care about our issues and which ones don’t. We believe helping animals helps us all.

“The amount of suffering endured by these gentle creatures for nothing more than a prize is barbaric, inhumane, and the time has come to end it once and for all.” ”

— Laurie Hood, Animal Wellness Action Florida State Director

TALLAHASSEE, FLORIDA, USA, August 30, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The U.S. House of Representatives recently passed the Prevent All Soring Tactics (PAST) Act, H.R. 693, by a vote of 333 to 96. The measure, led by U.S. Reps. Ted Yoho (R-FL), and Kurt Schrader (D-OR), co-chairs of the Congressional Veterinary Medicine Caucus received tremendous bipartisan support. Reps. Al Lawson, Michael Waltz, Stephanie Murphy, Bill Posey, Darren Soto, Val Demings, Gus Bilirakis, Charlie Crist, Kathy Castor, Vern Buchanan, Brian Mast, Francis Rooney, Alcee Hastings, Lois Frankel, Ted Deutch, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Frederica Wilson, Mario Diaz-Balart, and Debbie Mucarsel-Powell all voted in support of the measure. Rep. Matt Gaetz abstained from the vote.

Reps. Neal Dunn, John Rutherford, Dan Webster, Ross Spano, and Greg Steube voted against the measure, siding with animal abusers.

The PAST Act seeks to strengthen the Horse Protection Act and end the torturous, painful practice of soring Tennessee Walking, Racking, and Spotted Saddle Horses. Soring, the intentional infliction of pain to horses' front limbs by applying caustic chemicals such as mustard oil or kerosene or inserting sharp objects into the horses' hooves to create an exaggerated gait known as the "Big Lick,” has plagued the equine world for six decades. The “Big Lick” animal cruelty will be exhibited for the next 2 days at the Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration in Shelbyville, Tennessee.

Neither U.S. Senators Marco Rubio nor Rick Scott are cosponsors of the Senate companion bill, S. 1007, led by the senior U.S. Senator from Idaho, Republican Mike Crapo, that mirrors the House passed legislation and currently has 43 cosponsors in the Upper Chamber, but Rubio was a cosponsor of the bill in the 113th Congress.

“This abhorrent horse abuse has no place in our country's narrative, and I'm glad the U.S. Representatives in my home state voted overwhelmingly to put an end to it,” said Holly Gann director of federal affairs at Animal Wellness Action.

“The amount of suffering endured by these gentle creatures for nothing more than a prize is barbaric, inhumane, and the time has come to end it once and for all,” said Laurie Hood, Florida state director at Animal Wellness Action.

“As a veterinarian and lover of animals, it is time we end the inhumane practice of horse soring,” said Rep. Ted Yoho (R-FL-03). “I want to thank House Leadership for bringing the Prevent All Soring Tactics (PAST) Act up for a vote today and my colleague and fellow veterinarian Rep. Kurt Schrader for championing this bill with me over the years. The walking horse industry had plenty of time to self-police and change their ways, but they decided to press on. They have failed to take advantage of this opportunity and now it is time for horse soring to end.”

“Animals should be treated in a humane manner and I’m pleased to support this important legislation that will better protect horses from abuse,” said Rep. Bill Posey (R-FL-08).

“The practice of horse “soring” is nothing less than animal torture,” said Rep. Vern Buchanan (R-FL-16), co-chair of the Congressional Animal Protection Caucus. “We need to end this inhumane practice by making clear that anyone who abuses horses in this manner will be prosecuted.”

“Horse soring is a cruel practice that should be done away with,” said Rep. Charlie Crist (D-FL-13). “I’m proud to co-sponsor the PAST Act, bipartisan legislation that protects these majestic animals from such an inhumane, outdated procedure.”

“Horses are beautiful animals which have sadly become victims of this cruelty, which inflicts pain on their feet to win prizes,” said Rep. Michael Waltz (R-FL-06). “It needs to stop, and Congress needs to act. I’m glad to support Rep. Yoho and his legislation to end horse this horrifying practice once and for all.”

The PAST Act would ban the use of painful large stacked shoes and ankle chains and would also eliminate the existing system of self-regulation by the industry and toughen penalties for violators of the Horse Protection Act. It’s supported Animal Wellness Action, the American Horse Council, American Veterinary Medical Association, American Association of Equine Practitioners, United States Equestrian Federation, National Sheriff’s Association, and Florida Veterinary Medical Association.

— Priscilla Presley, Animal Wellness Advocate based in Beverly Hills

LOS ANGELES, CA, US, August 30, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The U.S. House of Representatives recently passed The Prevent All Soring Tactics (PAST) Act, H.R. 693, by a vote of 333 to 96. Of those supporting the bill, 57 were U.S. Representatives from California – which is 89% of the entire state’s delegation. Rep. Tom McClintock abstained from the vote, and U.S. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, along with Reps. Doug LaMalfa, Duncan Hunter, and Devin Nunes voted against the measure, siding with abusers.

The PAST Act would strengthen the Horse Protection Act to end the torturous, painful practice of soring, the intentional infliction of pain to horses' front limbs. Soring methods include applying caustic chemicals such as mustard oil and kerosene, and by inserting sharp painful objects into the hooves to create an exaggerated gait known as the "Big Lick”. Tomorrow night, the Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration in Shelbyville, Tennessee is set to crown it’s “Big Lick” World Grand Champion.

“We applaud the Members from California that supported the PAST Act for their key role in helping end the practice of soring that has marred the show horse world for six decades. The PAST Act’s overwhelming support sends a strong signal to the U.S. Senate that it should saddle up and swiftly move this legislation to a vote.” – Marty Irby, executive director at Animal Wellness Action and a past president of the Tennessee Walking Horse Breeders’ & Exhibitors’ Association

"Timing is ripe, and the majority of Americans want to see Congress work to protect these iconic American horses upon whose backs our country was built upon. U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell should swiftly schedule a vote on the PAST Act, and execute the will of the American people, and I call on him to do so!" – Priscilla Presley, Animal Wellness Advocate based in Beverly Hills

“We need to stand up for animals who cannot stand up for themselves and end horse soring for good. It is a cruel practice that should have been outlawed decades ago. As a proud cosponsor of the PAST Act, I am pleased to see Congress finally taking action to end this abuse.” – Rep. Susan Davis (D-CA)

“The PAST Act amends the Horse Protection Act of 1970 to end the abusive practice known as horse soring. Soring involves intentionally injuring horses’ hooves and legs to exaggerate the leg motion for horse show competitions. Even though it has been illegal for more than 50 years, it is still widely practiced. The bill will strengthen current regulations by improving U.S. Department of Agriculture enforcement, increasing civil and criminal penalties, and banning incentives to sore horses. I will stand up for animal welfare and support legislation to stop inhumane treatment. Harming horses and other animals is inconsistent with our Orange County values.” – Rep. Katie Porter (D-CA-45)

“Horse soring, though an outdated and horrific practice, continues across our country. I cosponsored the Prevent All Soring Tactics Act because it’s past time to protect horses and stop this cruel practice.” – Rep. Scott Peters (D-CA-52)

“Horse soring is a cruel and inhumane practice that Congress must stop now. Even though this practice has been illegal for over 50 years, it’s still widely done. That is why Congress needs to pass H.R. 693, which will improve USDA enforcement and strengthen penalties for violating the law.” – Rep. Barbara Lee (D-CA-13)

“I am committed to protecting animals from being subjected to cruelty or inhumane treatment. Horse soring is an unnecessary and abusive procedure, and I’m proud to be a cosponsor of the PAST Act along with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle.” – Rep. T.J. Cox (D-CA-21)

“Though horse soring was outlawed long ago, this inhumane practice is still occurring to this day. This legislation will strengthen regulations and increase penalties for offenders, so we can finally put an end to this senseless abuse.” –Rep. Jerry McNerney (D-CA-09)

“Horse soring is cruel, painful and unnecessary—we’re working to end this harmful and dated practice, and we’re doing it in a bipartisan way. I’m glad to stand alongside my colleagues to pass the PAST Act and put a stop to abusive horse soring.” – Rep. Salud Carbajal (D-CA-24)

Despite the House victory of H.R.693, concerted efforts must continue. The measure has been blocked for years by a handful of well-placed lawmakers. The next hurdle is the U.S. Senate. The Senate companion bill, S.1007, already has an impressive 43 cosponsors. Early Senate supporters of the bill include both California U.S. Senators, Dianne Feinstein and Kamala Harris.

“I’m proud to be a cosponsor of the PAST act. Soring, the infliction of pain on the legs and hooves of horses to create an exaggerated, artificial show gait, is a cruel and inhumane practice. I’m hopeful this bill will close the remaining loopholes to end this once and for all.” – Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA)

The PAST Act is supported by the American Quarter Horse Association, Animal Wellness Action, the American Horse Council, American Veterinary Medical Association, American Association of Equine Practitioners, United States Equestrian Federation, National Sheriff’s Association, and California Veterinary Medical Association.

My granddad would be so thrilled the PAST Act passed the House by such an overwhelming margin.”

— Ben Tydings Smith, grandson of Senator Joe Tydings

ANNAPOLIS, MARYLAND, USA, August 30, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The U.S. House of Representatives recently passed the U.S. Senator Joseph D. Tydings Memorial Prevent All Soring Tactics (PAST) Act, H.R. 693, by a vote of 333 to 96. The measure, named after the late Senator who authored the Horse Protection Act of 1970, and passed away last fall, received the full support of U.S. House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, and Reps. Anthony Brown, Elijah Cummings, Jamie Raskin, Dutch Ruppersberger, John Sarbanes, and David Trone who are all cosponsors of the bill and voted for the measure.

In an odd twist, U.S. Rep. Andy Harris, also a cosponsor of the PAST Act, changed his position and voted against the bill, siding with animal abusers.

The PAST Act seeks to strengthen the Horse Protection Act and end the torturous, painful practice of soring Tennessee Walking, Racking, and Spotted Saddle Horses. Soring, the intentional infliction of pain to horses' front limbs by applying caustic chemicals such as mustard oil or kerosene or inserting sharp objects into the horses' hooves to create an exaggerated gait known as the "Big Lick,” has plagued the equine world for six decades. The “Big Lick” animal cruelty will be exhibited for the next 2 days at the Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration in Shelbyville, Tennessee.

Both U.S. Senators Ben Cardin and Chris Van Hollen are listed as cosponsors of the Senate companion bill, S. 1007, led by the senior U.S. Senator from Idaho, Republican Mike Crapo, that mirrors the House passed legislation and currently has 43 cosponsors in the Upper Chamber.

“This legislation will close loopholes that enable the cruel practice of ‘soring’,” said U.S. House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (MD-05). “I thank Rep. Schrader for being a champion of animal welfare issues and building on the legacy of my late friend, Senator Tydings. I urge Senator McConnell to take up this bipartisan legislation without delay.”

“My reason for supporting the PAST Act is simple: soring is cruel and inhumane,” said Rep. Dutch Ruppersberger (MD-02). “I share the outrage of my constituents at those who chose to abuse animals and it’s time we finally implement laws that are already on the books banning this practice.”

“Soring is a cruel and inhumane practice that puts the welfare of horses at risk,” said Rep. Elijah Cummings (MD-07). “The PAST Act would help put an end to this abusive procedure by strengthening current regulations and bringing transparency to the horse competition industry. I am pleased that the PAST Act is named in honor of my late friend, Senator Joseph D. Tydings. A tireless fighter for animal rights, Joe devoted his life to ending the practice of soring.”

“My granddad would be so thrilled the PAST Act passed the House by such an overwhelming margin,” said Ben Tydings Smith, grandson of the late Senator Joseph D. Tydings. “He cared so deeply for these horses and I know he is probably looking down with a big smile on his face. On behalf of the Tydings family, thank you to all the sponsors, cosponsors, and Members of the House who voted to end soring and cement grandad’s legacy.”

“We applaud the Members from Maryland that supported the PAST Act for their key role in helping end the practice of soring that has marred the show horse world for six decades, and thank Leader Hoyer for his tremendous work on this issue.” said Marty Irby, executive director at Animal Wellness Action and a past president of the Tennessee Walking Horse Breeders’ & Exhibitors’ Association. “Senator Tydings was a dear friend, who cared deeply about the Tennessee Walking Horse and I believe he’s still working to help the horses from above.”

"Timing is ripe, and the majority of Americans want to see Congress work to protect these iconic American horses upon whose backs our country was built upon," said Animal Wellness Advocate Priscilla Presley. "U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell should swiftly schedule a vote on the PAST Act, and execute the will of the American people, and I call on him to do so!"

The PAST Act would ban the use of painful large stacked shoes and ankle chains and would also eliminate the existing system of self-regulation by the industry and toughen penalties for violators of the Horse Protection Act. It’s supported by the American Saddlebred Association, American Quarter Horse Association, Animal Wellness Action, the American Horse Council, American Veterinary Medical Association, American Association of Equine Practitioners, United States Equestrian Federation, National Sheriff’s Association, and Maryland Veterinary Medical Association.

The PAST Act has been blocked for years by a handful of well-placed lawmakers, but a new House rule triggering consideration of any measure that attracts 290 or more cosponsors brought the issue to the floor. PAST attracted 308 cosponsors and was led by Rep. Kurt Schrader (D-OR) and Ted Yoho (R-FL), cochairs of the Congressional Veterinary Medicine Caucus, along with Reps. Steve Cohen (D-TN), Ron Estes (R-KS), Jan Schakowsky (D-IL), and Chris Collins (R-NY).

Dogs and Their Caretakers Sickened in 35-State Salmonella Outbreak Leads to Multiple Lawsuits

Pig Ear Salmonella lawsuit

Man’s Best Friends are getting sick after consuming imported pigs ears contaminated with salmonella. At least 145 Caretakers have become ill, many hospitalized

Many people stock up on this product as it has a long shelf-life and have the product in their homes. They are still feeding it to their pets while they and their kids are still handling the product.”

— National Salmonella Lawyer Ron Simon

DES MOINES, IOWA, USA, August 30, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Man’s Best Friends are getting sick after consuming non-irradiated pigs ears contaminated with salmonella. Many pet caretakers are also becoming sick from either handling the pig ear’s contaminated with salmonella, or simply loving on man’s best friend. The FDA has taken action to prevent the spread of salmonella believed to be linked to the pig ears imported from Argentina, Brazil and Columbia.

In recent months, man’s best friends have been getting sick by the many hundreds, if not thousands, from salmonella food poisoning. They cannot communicate their gastrointestinal illness, and are rarely tested, but many dog lovers know something is wrong with their loved one. Then, in a twist that adds insult to injury, at least 145 caretakers have also become ill in at least 35 states! Iowa has been hit hardest with 23 ill caretakers, and Illinois with 10. These caretakers, and the ones in another 33 states (discussed below) have either become sick form handing the pig ears when feeding them to their dogs, or by contact with their dogs after they become ill, such as though touch or cleaning up after their pup’s illness. The transfer of a pathogen form an animal to a human is all to common, referred to in veterinary materials as zoonosis.

[The dogs pictured, and their caretakers, are all victims of the Pig Ear Salmonella Outbreak]

Unfortunately, about one –in-three of the human illnesses have required hospitalization due to the severity of their illnesses and the fact that many have developed an antibiotic resistant strain of salmonella!

It took investigators a little time to identify the source, but after at least 90 samples of pig ears, many from victims homes, tested positive for multiple strains of salmonella ( there are at least 2100 strains, or serotypes, of salmonella). The serotypes implicated in this outbreak include, so far, Salmonella Anatum, Salmonella Brandenburg, Salmonella Cerro, Salmonella Derby, Salmonella Give, Salmonella Infantis, Salmonella Livingstone, Salmonella London, Salmonella Newport, Salmonella Panama, Salmonella Rissen, Salmonella Seftenberg, Salmonella Typhimurium, Salmonella Uganda, Salmonella Worthington and one with its own unique name,” Salmonella I 4,[5],12:i:-.”

The companies issuing recalls include Brutus & Barnaby, Chef Toby, Good Dogs USA, Lennox International, and Pet Supplies Plus – so far. It is likely other retailers and distributors will also issue recalls or stop selling the product in the near future. Amazon, for example, has been one of the distributors of the tainted product.
FDA Issues “Detention Without Physical Examination and Intensified Coverage of Pig Ears And Other Pet Treats Due To The Presence of Salmonella”

In addition to conducting an extensive trace-back in the U.S., the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) has issued an Import Alert 72-03 to temporarily cease import of the potentially deadly products until further notice. According to Steven M. Solomon, D.V.M., M.P.H., director of the FDA’s Center for Veterinary Medicine, “The FDA takes seriously our responsibility to protect both human and animal health . . . we believe the most effective way to protect public health at this time is to warn consumers to avoid purchasing or feeding their pets all pig ear treats and for retailers not to sell these products. We also continue to advise those who may have come into contact with potentially contaminated products to practice safe hygiene, including thoroughly washing hands and disinfecting any surfaces that have touched pig ear pet treats. The FDA will provide additional updates as our investigation further progresses.”

Director Solomon also confirmed that the tainted pig ears are believed to have come from Argentina, Brazil and Columbia.

The FDA’s Center for Veterinary Medicine issued the following statement:
“The FDA and CDC are advising consumers to avoid all pig ear pet treats and retailers to stop selling all pig ear treats at this time. Lennox Intl Inc., a distributor of pig ear pet treats, has recalled some of the treats involved in this outbreak. Last month, Pet Supplies Plus also initiated a recall of bulk pig ears after samples tested by the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development tested positive for Salmonella. And, most recently, on August 16, Dog Goods USA LLC announced a recall of non-irradiated bulk and packaged Chef Toby Pig Ears.”

The states implicated in the pig ear salmonella outbreak include Alabama, Arizona, California, Colorado (3 cases), Connecticut, Florida (3 cases), Georgia (3 cases), Hawaii, Illinois (10 cases), Indiana (5 cases), Iowa (23 cases), Kansas (3 cases), Kentucky (6 cases), Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts (4 cases), Michigan (14 cases), Minnesota, Missouri (7 cases), New Hampshire, New Jersey (3 cases), New Mexico, New York (16 cases), North Carolina (2 cases), North Dakota, Ohio (8 cases), Oregon (3 cases), Pennsylvania (7 cases), South Carolina (2 cases), Texas (2 cases), Utah, Virginia, Washington, and Wisconsin (4 cases).

According to local and national news outlets, most tainted products have been removed from the shelves. The problem, however, is explained by National Salmonella Lawyer Ron Simon who is handling a number of the pig ear salmonella lawsuits: “Many people stock up on this product since it has a long shelf-life and are likely to still have the product in their homes. They are still feeding it to their pets, their kids are handling the product, and in other cases, the dogs are sick themselves still, and actively shedding the disease so the family is at risk. Too few dogs are taken to the vet, properly diagnosed with as tool culture, and placed on an antibiotic proven to kill that strain of salmonella.”

Texas Congressional Delegation Split on Measure to Protect Iconic American Horses; 12 Members Side with Animal Abusers

Soring

Example of soring that enforcement of the Horse Protection Act would prevent

Priscilla Presley, U.S. House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD), Holly Gann, and Marty Irby on Capitol Hill Discussing the PAST Act

The bottom line is you are either for animal cruelty, or you are against it.”

— – U.S. Rep. Ted Yoho (R-FL)

AUSTIN, TEXAS, USA, August 30, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The U.S. House of Representatives recently passed the Prevent All Soring Tactics (PAST) Act, H.R. 693, by a vote of 333 to 96. The measure received strong support from the State of Texas with Reps. Van Taylor, Lance Gooden, Lizzie Fletcher, Al Green, Mike McCaul, Kay Granger, Randy Weber, Vicente Gonzalez, Veronica Escobar, Bill Flores, Sheila Jackson Lee, Jodey Arrington, Joaquin Castro, Will Hurd, Roger Williams, Michael Burgess, Henry Cuellar, Sylvia Garcia, Eddie Bernice Johnson, Collin Allred, Marc Veasey, Filemon Vela, Lloyd Doggett, and Brian Babin voting in support of the measure.

Reps. Louie Gohmert, Dan Crenshaw, John Ratcliffe, Ron Wright, Kevin Brady, Mike Conaway, Mac Thornberry, Chip Roy, Pete Olson, Michael Cloud, John Carter, and Kenny Marchant voted against the bill – siding with animal abusers. Marchant had been a longtime cosponsor of the measure but changed his position by voting against the PAST Act.

The PAST Act seeks to strengthen the Horse Protection Act and end the torturous, painful practice of soring Tennessee Walking, Racking, and Spotted Saddle Horses. Soring, the intentional infliction of pain to horses' front limbs by applying caustic chemicals such as mustard oil or kerosene or inserting sharp objects into the horses' hooves to create an exaggerated gait known as the "Big Lick,” has plagued the equine world for six decades. The “Big Lick” animal cruelty will be exhibited for the next 2 days at the Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration in Shelbyville, Tennessee.

Neither U.S. Senators John Cornyn, nor Ted Cruz are listed as cosponsors of the Senate companion bill, S. 1007, led by the senior U.S. Senator from Idaho, Republican Mike Crapo, that mirrors the House passed legislation and currently has 43 cosponsors in the Upper Chamber.

“The bottom line is you are either for animal cruelty, or you are against it,” said Rep. Ted Yoho (R-FL), lead Republican sponsor of the House PAST Act.

“We applaud the Members from Texas that supported the PAST Act for their key role in helping end the practice of soring that has marred the show horse world for six decades,” said Marty Irby, executive director at Animal Wellness Action and a past president of the Tennessee Walking Horse Breeders’ & Exhibitors’ Association. “The PAST Act’s overwhelming support sends a strong signal to the U.S. Senate that it should saddle up and swiftly move this legislation to a vote, and I hope Senators Cornyn and Cruz will join in co-sponsoring the bill.”

"Timing is ripe, and the majority of Americans want to see Congress work to protect these iconic American horses upon whose backs our country was built upon," said Animal Wellness Advocate Priscilla Presley. "U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell should swiftly schedule a vote on the PAST Act, and execute the will of the American people, and I call on him to do so!"

The PAST Act would ban the use of painful large stacked shoes and ankle chains and would also eliminate the existing system of self-regulation by the industry and toughen penalties for violators of the Horse Protection Act. It’s supported by the American Saddlebred Association, American Quarter Horse Association, Animal Wellness Action, the American Horse Council, American Veterinary Medical Association, American Association of Equine Practitioners, United States Equestrian Federation, National Sheriff’s Association, and New York Veterinary Medical Association.

The PAST Act has been blocked for years by a handful of well-placed lawmakers, but a new House rule triggering consideration of any measure that attracts 290 or more cosponsors brought the issue to the floor. PAST attracted 308 cosponsors and was led by Rep. Kurt Schrader (D-OR) and Ted Yoho (R-FL), cochairs of the Congressional Veterinary Medicine Caucus, along with Reps. Steve Cohen (D-TN), Ron Estes (R-KS), Jan Schakowsky (D-IL), and Chris Collins (R-NY).

… I hope Leader Chuck Schumer will push for a vote on the bill before the year is over.”

— Marty Irby, executive director at Animal Wellness Action

ALBANY, NEW YORK , USA, August 30, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The U.S. House of Representatives recently passed the Prevent All Soring Tactics (PAST) Act, H.R. 693, by a vote of 333 to 96. U.S. Rep. Chris Collins, one of the bill’s leadership team members, was joined by the entire New York Congressional Delegation that voted in support of the measure: Reps. Lee Zeldin, Peter King, Thomas Suozzi, Kathleen Rice, Gregory Meeks, Grace Meng, Nydia Velázquez, Hakeem Jeffries, Yvette Clarke, Jerrold Nadler, Max Rose, Carolyn Maloney, Adriano Espaillat, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, José Serrano, Eliot Engel, Nita Lowey, Sean Maloney, Antonio Delgado, Paul Tonko, Elise Stefanik, Anthony Brindisi, Tom Reed, John Katko, Joseph Morelle, and Brian Higgins. Each of these Members were also co-sponsors of the PAST Act with the exception of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, whose office did not respond to multiple requests for co-sponsorship.

The PAST Act seeks to strengthen the Horse Protection Act and end the torturous, painful practice of soring Tennessee Walking, Racking, and Spotted Saddle Horses. Soring, the intentional infliction of pain to horses' front limbs by applying caustic chemicals such as mustard oil or kerosene or inserting sharp objects into the horses' hooves to create an exaggerated gait known as the "Big Lick,” has plagued the equine world for six decades. The “Big Lick” animal cruelty will be exhibited for the next 2 days at the Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration in Shelbyville, Tennessee.

U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand is also a cosponsor of the Senate companion bill, S. 1007, led by the senior U.S. Senator from Idaho, Mike Crapo, that mirrors the House passed legislation and currently has 43 cosponsors in the Upper Chamber. U.S. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer has yet to cosponsor the legislation in the 116th Congress but has supported the measure in previous Congresses.

“We applaud Rep. Chris Collins for his tremendous leadership, and the entire House Delegation from New York for their terrific work to help end the practice of soring that has marred the show horse world for six decades,” said Marty Irby, executive director at Animal Wellness Action and a past president of the Tennessee Walking Horse Breeders’ & Exhibitors’ Association. “The PAST Act’s overwhelming support sends a strong signal to the U.S. Senate that it should saddle up and swiftly move this legislation, and I hope Leader Chuck Schumer will push for a vote on the bill before the year is over.”

“As co-chairman of the Congressional Horse Caucus, I am proud to support this legislation that will bring an end to horse soring,” said Rep. Paul Tonko (NY-20). “By strengthening penalties and banning the use of devices associated with soring, the PAST Act will ensure that these majestic animals are protected from this inhumane and painful practice.”

“The PAST Act is an important piece of legislation in our fight to protect the safety and wellbeing of horses,” said Rep. Adriano Espaillat (NY-13). “Despite the presence of previous laws outlawing the practice of soring, or deliberately causing pain to a horse’s leg to change gait patterns, it continues to be common practice. The PAST Act will help remedy this problem by adding enforcement and increasing penalties for this abusive practice. We are encouraged by the broad support this bill has garnered from both sides of the aisle and associations across the country and will continue our efforts to end animal abuse and support animal rights.”

“Horses have a special place in American culture, and they deserve additional protections from needless cruelty,” said Rep. Anthony Brindisi (NY-22). “I am proud to support the PAST Act to end the painful practice of horse soring, and I am pleased to see this bill pass the House with strong bipartisan support.”

“Congress took action to prevent soring tactics in 1970, but it’s time we strengthen penalties for abusers,” said Rep. Nydia Velázquez (NY-07). “All of us should care deeply about improving current regulations, as well as banning practices like chemical burn and stacked horseshoes. We must end the culture of animal abuse that prioritizes blue ribbons and unscrupulous trainers over our horses. The PAST Act will bring greater transparency to our horse competition community and help ensure that all horses are protected.”

“The practice of soring is abusive and reprehensible,” said Rep. Joe Morelle (NY-25). It is despicable to endanger the health and safety of horses simply for human sport. I am proud to co-sponsor this legislation that seeks to strengthen USDA oversight and enforcement as well as bring harsher punishments to those who continue this inhumane practice.”

“I am proud to cosponsor and vote for the Prevent All Soring Tactics (PAST) Act, which would eliminate the practice of horse soring,” said Rep. Grace Meng (NY-06). It is time Congress pass legislation to protect horses from mistreatment and end this barbaric practice of inflicting pain to a horse’s hooves to achieve an artificial gait used in horse shows. I will continue to be a strong advocate for this important cause and work together with my colleagues to pass animal protection laws.”

The PAST Act would ban the use of painful large stacked shoes and ankle chains and would also eliminate the existing system of self-regulation by the industry and toughen penalties for violators of the Horse Protection Act. It’s supported by the American Saddlebred Association, American Quarter Horse Association, Animal Wellness Action, the American Horse Council, American Veterinary Medical Association, American Association of Equine Practitioners, United States Equestrian Federation, National Sheriff’s Association, and New York Veterinary Medical Association.

The PAST Act has been blocked for years by a handful of well-placed lawmakers, but a new House rule triggering consideration of any measure that attracts 290 or more cosponsors brought the issue to the floor. PAST attracted 308 cosponsors and was led by Rep. Kurt Schrader (D-OR) and Ted Yoho (R-FL), co-chairs of the Congressional Veterinary Medicine Caucus, along with Reps. Steve Cohen (D-TN), Ron Estes (R-KS), Jan Schakowsky (D-IL), and Chris Collins (R-NY).
