Harry Reid for U.S. Senate
Election Day is November 2, and advocates of animal protection need to know who is standing up for their interests. The Humane Society Legislative Fund is the non-partisan political arm of the humane movement, and we want you to know that Harry Reid is a friend of animal protection in the U.S. Senate.
Be a part of the growing humane voting bloc by supporting Harry Reid for U.S. Senate on Tuesday, November 2.
Currently representing Nevada in the U.S. Senate, Reid has been an important ally on animal protection issues in Congress. As Senate Majority Leader, Reid is uniquely positioned to champion animal protection issues on the Senate floor. Here are a few of his pro-animal votes and actions:
Reid gave an impassioned speech on the Senate floor in support of a number of pending bills to protect a host of creatures—sharks, stranded marine mammals, cranes, great cats, rare wild canines, and sea otters—and urged the Senate to approve all those bills unanimously. (H.R. 388, 411, 556, S. 850, S. 859)
"These wildlife conservation and animal welfare bills have already passed the House of Representatives, and for a good reason," Reid said in his remarks to the Senate. "They also have bipartisan support. Most importantly, all of these measures are supported by the American people. These aren’t Democratic or Republican issues; they are issues of good moral conscience."
He also expressed support for the passage of a bill to ban the trafficking in obscene animal "crush" videos and provided an opportunity for lawmakers to consider that bill on an expedited basis, which led to the crush video bill passing unanimously in the Senate. (S. 3841)
Sponsored the Wild Horse and Burro Adoption Day bill, which encourages U.S. citizens to adopt a wild horse or burro as a living symbol of the historic and pioneer spirit of the Western frontier. (S. Res. 283)
Voted to override President Bush's veto of the Farm Bill 2008, which contained key animal welfare provisions to strengthen federal law on animal fighting, prohibit importation of puppies under six months of age, and increase penalties for violations of the Animal Welfare Act. (P.L. 110-234)
Co-sponsored a bill to stop the slaughter of "downer" livestock too sick or injured to walk on their own. (S. 1779-109th Congress.)
