We have just received word that the senate will indeed be opening the 2013 Ag appropriations bill next week.
They are adopting the bill passed by the house that does not have the defunding language. The house did not open discussions and carried over the existing language.
It is very important that you contact Senator Mikulski and the subcommittee members and ask that the language defunding horse inspections be restored.
Please call NOW as next week may be too late…
Request language be restored to defund USDA inspections of horsemeat in the FY2013 Ag Appropriations Bill Continuing Resolution:

Not Now Christine… This is getting down to the wire…The Lives of the Horses are in the Hands of this Committee.
future judgments against the country
Horse slaughtering is becoming a loosing business just like the horse racing industry. Just watch, governments will scramble to prop them up with taxpayers money so that more people will innocently enough poison themselves to death with all the crap that horses are medicated with these days. Come on people, take back your lives and spare those of the innocent horses.
What is wrong with these people? This funding costs $$$$$. Can they not see beyond their noses?
apparently not Arlene.
When you’re done calling, how about tweeting?
Why should our tax dollars be spent on meat we don’t eat, at no economic benefit to the USA? Prevent the problems the EU is facing with beef contaminated by horsemeat and pork. The EU’s food pipeline requirement of animal passports is not working! Animals not raised for slaughter should not be slaughtered for food and most if not all American horses slaughtered in Canada or Mexico, are not fit for human consumption. TRIM THE FAT!
