Introduced by Senators Mark Kirk (R-IL) and Robert Menendez (D-NJ), the Horse Transportation Safety Act of 2013 (S. 1459) would prohibit the hauling of horses on livestock trailers containing one level on top of the other.
The bill has garnered bipartisan support in Congress, as well from the welfare, veterinary and agriculture communities.
Please call your two U.S. Senators and urge them to support S.1459 in order to protect horses from being transported across the United States for any reason in a trailer having more than one level.
