Animal Welfare

One of the fundamental reasons that Bernie is calling out corruption in government is because of the blatant refusal by sitting officials on BOTH sides to protect people over profits. Below is a list of bills that Bernie has co-sponsored regarding animal welfare that has been blocked by other members of government:

  • May 15, 2013 - H.R.1998, Big Cats And Public Safety Protection Act: To amend the Lacey Act Amendments of 1981 to clarify provisions enacted by the Captive Wildlife Safety Act, to further the conservation of certain wildlife species, and for other purposes. Co-sponsored by Bernie Sanders
