Federal Legislation

115th Congress

SUPPORT: Positive Federal Animal Protection Legislation – Each Congress, dozens of bills are introduced over a two year period that seek to create new laws aimed at helping protect animals or improve on existing laws.

OPPOSE: Harmful Federal Animal Legislation –  While there are many bills introduced to help animals, there are often as many bad bills designed to undermine existing protections such as the Endangered Species Act (ESA), Marine Mammal Protection Act (MMPA) to mention two.  It is as important to contact Congress in opposition of bad bills as it is to write in favor of good bills.
