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:
