After a quick reading, it appears as if protections for wild horses and burros have been maintained in the US Senate Appropriations Committee bill for Fiscal Year 2019. The language in the Senate version shows no change from the language contained in the Omnibus passed for 2018.
While this is encouraging, the 2 versions of the bill now go to the House and Senate Floor where amendments can still be introduced and voted on.
The House and Senate will still need to work out the differences between their two bills, so we can’t let up on the pressure. Keep calling and writing your representatives and ask them to keep the House language out of the spending package. No sterilization, sale for slaughter, mass euthanasia, etc.
