EWA (Equine Welfare Alliance) put together this ALERT.
The bill will be heard on Friday, May 13. Carrol Abel said the committee usually meets at 3:30 but the schedule for this meeting is to begin upon adjournment of a different meeting but no later than 3:30. If you are planning on attending the hearing (room 2144 in the legislative building) it is recommended that you arrive no later than 2p. The hearing will be streaming live on the NV legislature site. http://www.leg.state.nv.us/
We ended up not providing a list of names for this effort, only a count. Thank you all for your comments and quick responses. We received an email from one of our members that was very powerful. Her employer is a national real estate firm that frequently holds their annual meeting in Las Vegas. Her email, on behalf of her employer stated that should this bill pass, they will make sure the meeting is never again held in Las Vegas. The attendance at this meeting is 8,000.
For those of you that feel helpless being one individual, this is but one example of the power that one individual can represent!
My dear friend Steven Long has put together an article on this issue that is worth a read for out of state individuals. http://horsebackmagazine.com
