Oklahoma House Speaker Shannon Supports Horse Slaughter BillsThu, 14 Mar 2013 05:09:17 CDT
It was a packed house for a combination news conference/Pep Rally for the so called Horse Slaughter legislation on Wednesday morning at the State Capitol in Oklahoma City. A pair of farm leaders representing the state's two major general farm organizations and several lawmakers spoke in favor of HB1999 and SB375- calling for their quick passage and for the Governor to sign one of the measures into law.
The Speaker of the Oklahoma House, TW Shannon, was the first of several lawmakers who professed support for the horse slaughter legislation to the cheering crowd of farmers, ranchers, horsemen and others who far outnumbered the members of the media that were present.
