The SAFE Act has a new bill number: H.R. 961.

The Safeguard American Food Exports (SAFE) Act would permanently ban horse slaughter in the U.S. and end the export of horses for slaughter abroad. After a filing error last week, the bill was reintroduced on Monday as H.R. 961 by Reps. Jan Schakowsky (D-Ill.) and Vern Buchanan (R-Fla.).

During the 115th Congress, which ended in December, the SAFE Act amassed 218 cosponsors in the House and 30 in the Senate, but it was not brought up for a vote by the leaders of either chamber. For the bill to have a chance of advancing out of committee, we need to send a loud-and-clear message to Congress that it’s time to protect America’s equines, domestic and wild, from the horror of slaughter.
