The AVMA is actively seeking passage of the Horse Transportation Safety Act (H.R. 305). This legislation would prohibit the interstate transportation of horses in a motor vehicle containing two or more levels stacked on top of one another. The House Subcommittee on Highways and Transit is currently considering the bill, which was introduced in January 2009. Contact Dr. Mark Lutschaunig, AVMA Governmental Relations Division director, at (800) 321-1473, Ext. 3205 for more information.
