PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING FOR MORE IMPORTANT INFORMATION ON HOW YOU CAN HELP FURTHER!
Great news......as of the beginning of this week, we have 84 co-sponsors for HR503!! Our goal for this week is to reach 100 co-sponsors. To achieve this goal, we will continue with the following plan. Please check back to this post daily. We will be removing names as they sign on to co-sponsor so this thread should be current every day. The strategy now is to gain co-sponsors for HR 503, the Conyers-Burton Prevention of Equity Cruelty Act of 2009. Please call upon your own Representatives if they have not yet co-sponsored HR 503. To find the current co-sponsors go to: www.thomas.gov and search by Bill number HR503. You can then click on co-sponsors.
Once you have called your own Representative, the plan is to start with those co-sponsors of HR 6598 that have not yet signed on. Following is a list of these Representatives. As they co-sponsor, their name will be removed from this list.
Co-sponsors of 2008 Bill 6598 who have NOT yet signed to 2009 Bill HR503:
NOTE TO MICHIGAN RESIDENCE: I CALLED CONGRESSWOMAN CAROLYN C. KILPATRICKS OFFICE TO ASK HER "MALE RECEPTIONIST" IF REP. KILPATRICK HAS SIGNED THE BILL H.R.503, NOT ONLY WAS HE RUDE IN RESPONSE, BUT HE DIDN'T EVEN BOTHER TO LOOK IT UP TO LET ME KNOW. THEY HAVE ACCESS TO THIS INFORMATION FOR WHEN CONSTITUENTS CALL IN, SO PLEASE BE PERSISTANT AND MAKE SURE YOU GET YOUR ANSWERS, TELL THEM YOU WANT TO LEAVE YOUR NAME AND ADDRESS. DON'T LET THESE ASSISTANCE OF THE REPRESENTATIVES INTIMIDATE YOU INTO NOT GETTING YOUR ANSWERS. YOU ARE A CITIZEN OF THE UNITED STATES, AND IF IT WASN'T FOR YOUR VOTES, THEY WOULDN'T BE IN OFFICE!

FOR YOUR CONVENIENCE - You can use this toll-free number 800-828-0498and ask for a legislator by name (or ask for extension, last 5 numbers of legislator's office phone)
This list will be friends of the anti slaughter legislation so they should be the easiest to approach without going into a lot of detail. We will be editing this list daily as people sign on, so please check this post each day. And we will start a new thread with current lists each week.
Please Note: We have started a separate thread titled “State Action Needed”. Several States have introduced their own legislation to allow horse slaughter. These states need our help. to keep this from happening. Please pass the word!!
Remember, WE ARE BARBARO’S VOICE.....Let it be heard.
