The AVMA is actively pursuing passage of H.R. 305, the Horse Transportation Safety Act. 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 Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure passed H.R. 305, and it's awaiting a vote by the full House. Contact Dr. Mark Lutschaunig, AVMA Governmental Relations Division director, at (800) 321-1473, Ext. 3205, for more information.
