America’s Wild Horses and Burros urgently need your help today to save them from Sterilization and Eradication
The U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Appropriations just announced that a Joint House and Senate Conference Committee meeting will take place tomorrow, September 13th, to begin discussions on finalizing Fiscal Year 2019 Appropriations legislation (H.R. 6157) – including funding for the Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM’s) Wild Horse and Burro Program.
The Appropriations Committees must meet in Conference so that the bills in each match. While the Senate voted to protect our wild horses and burros, the House of Representatives included the dangerous Stewart Amendment. The two committees will conference tomorow September 13th and decide whether or not to include language in the Stewart Amendment which will authorize the BLM to manage wild horses and burros in same sex and non-reproducing herds, and to use dangerous and cruel sterilization methods.
If passed with this language, it could soon mean the end of wild horses roaming free on our public lands, and also the end of over 50 years of protection.
We need your help! Yes you can make a difference – here is exactly what to do. Call today.
Please take these steps, thank you to AWHC for putting this together:
- Call Your Congressmen and Senators at 202-224-3121. Here’s what you need to say:“I’m [name] and I’m a constituent. Please ask Rep./ Senator [Name] to contact the Appropriations conference committee to urge them to reject the Stewart Amendment calling for the mass sterilization of wild horses and burros. This would undermine 50 years of protection and is counter to the wishes of the 80 percent of Americans who want our wild horses protected and humanely managed. Thank you.”
