"There has been no action and no request to add this legislation to the Supplemental. That legislation will host a number of vital Louisiana priorities," Sen. Landrieu said. "I will continue my push to end the inhumane slaughter of horses at the appropriate time in the Senate.
"The slaughter of horses is both cruel and inhumane, and it is our responsibility to ensure that it no longer occurs," Sen. Landrieu said. "I was proud to cosponsor legislation to ban horse slaughter in the 109th Congress and I am proud to be the lead sponsor of the legislation in the 110th."
