Inhofe Introduces Amendment to Allow Horse Slaughter Plants

Inhofe Introduces Amendment to Allow Horse Slaughter Plants
U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.) today introduced an amendment to the omnibus spending bill that would strike a provision of the bill blocking the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) from inspecting horse slaughter plants and thereby effectively banning these facilities in the United States.


"I am very concerned that the omnibus appropriations bill includes a provision that blocks government inspection of horse processing facilities, effectively shutting down this industry," said Inhofe. "Without these facilities, aging horses are often neglected or forced to endure cruel conditions as they are transported to processing facilities across the border. This provision is counterproductive to what animal rights activists are hoping to achieve through this provision. That is why I am offering an amendment to strike the provision, which would reinstate these inspections."


Inhofe and Congressman Markwayne Mullin (R-OK-2) plan to introduce standalone legislation on this issue if the amendment is not adopted.
