4/19/2016 - Committee approves Farr-Dent amendment to ban horse slaughter

WASHINGTON – The House Appropriations Committee accepted an amendment authored by Reps. Sam Farr (D-Calif.) and Charlie Dent (R-Pa.) to prevent horse slaughter in the United States. The bipartisan amendment to the 2017 Agriculture Appropriations bill prevents the Department of Agriculture from using any funds to inspect horse slaughter facilities. Without inspections, these facilities cannot operate in the United States, effectively continuing the ban of horse slaughter.
