Update Sept. 29, 2008: Sources say Congress will not consider further this session H.R. 6598, the Conyers-Burton Prevention of Equine Cruelty Act of 2008.
The reason given is the focus on the bail out for Wall Street and banks.
Congress will also not consider further the American Horse Slaughter Prevention Act which has been stuck in a House Committee and also has not been called for a vote in the Senate because of a threat by Sen. Larry Craig to put a hold on the legislation. 66 votes would be needed to override a hold.
