Motor City Madness

At the Humane Society Legislative Fund, one of our goals is to let constituents know where their elected officials stand on animal protection issues. We publish the Humane Scorecard, which tracks legislators’ voting records and co-sponsorships on key animal welfare measures. We celebrate lawmakers who use their skills and talents to advance the humane treatment of animals, and we hold those accountable who are hostile to modest and common-sense reforms to stop cruelty and abuse.

Today, the Oakland Press in Michigan published a guest column by me on Republican Congressman Joe Knollenberg’s record on animal protection. Knollenberg represents a suburban district with an animal-friendly constituency, yet perplexingly he has amassed one of the worst records on animal cruelty issues in Congress. You can read the opinion piece here.
