Co-Sponsorship Activity for: H.R. 746: Animal Welfare in Agricultural Research Endeavors Act

Bill Info: This bill would amend the Animal Welfare Act to apply standards for humane treatment to farm animals at federal research or laboratory animal facilities. As a result of strong public support for this policy, proposed agricultural appropriations for Fiscal Year 2016 directs the Animal Research Service (ARS) to ensure proper standards for animal welfare, and the House version withholds 5% of the agency’s funding until the Secretary of Agriculture certifies that ARS is in compliance.
