Quick update regarding HR 1018 from the AWHPC, dated 7/17/09 :
The Restoring Our American Mustangs (ROAM) Act - HR 1018, introduced by U.S. Representatives Rahall and Grijalva, passed in the House of Representatives this morning. The bill amends the Wild Free-Roaming Horse and Burro Act by adding important new protections and provisions, such as the banning of helicopter round-ups and the reclaiming of land lost by America's wild horses over the past 30 years.
Thank you so much to all who raised your voices in support of this critical piece of legislation. Now we need to prepare for the Senate vote!
