In our city of North Bay Village Florida I met with the Mayor and we (the Mayor and Commissioners)
adopted a Resolution No. 2006-67 urging the US congress to amend the Horse protection act...to prohibit the shipping,transporting etc... to stop the inhumane slaughtering of our horses for human consumption ....this is non humane... this is an insult to our american people we don't eat our Horses...they are slaughtered alive...they the Horses help our american soldiers...The slaughter houses need and should be shut down for good..
Please if you need a copy of the Resolution I will fax it to you so you can post it in your paper...
I thank you

Theresa,
Good for you keep the pressure on, and write to the Congressman of Virginia, Bob Goodlatte, he is one of the people holding up H.R. 503 and S. 1915. Look into it.
