|Amendment to the Interior Appropriations Bill to cut $2 million from the annual budget of the U.S. Bureau of Land Management|
ASPCA Position: Support
Action Needed: Please email your U.S. senators and urge them to support U.S. Representative Dan Burton’s amendment to the Interior Appropriations Bill!
The U.S. Bureau of Land Management (BLM) continues to mismanage the care of wild horses and burros. The agency’s current policies authorize inhumane methods of gathering and confinement that may result in the eradication of these animals. U.S. Representative Dan Burton of Indiana has recently succeeded in passing an amendment to the Interior Appropriations Bill to cut $2 million from the BLM’s annual budget in order to pressure the agency to stop its ill-conceived efforts.
This amendment was adopted by the U.S. House of Representatives and will soon be considered in the Senate. Please let your two U.S. senators know that they should support the Burton amendment to cut $2 million dollars from the BLM program. It saves both money and wild horses.
What You Can Do
Please use the email below to contact your U.S. senators today, urging them to support a $2 million reduction in the BLM’s budget and save wild horses from the agency’s mismanagement.
Thank you for your help, animal advocates.
