Wild Horse Protection Bill (R.O.A.M. Act - HR 1018) Passes in House
by a vote of 239 to 185
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, but is not law yet. It still needs to pass in the Senate. 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.
So the struggle for wild horse protection is not over yet.
Sorry for my confusion.
HR 1018, the R.O.A.M. Act, passed in the house today by a vote of 239 to 185;
Only 33 republicans voted Yes!
This law gives back 19 M acres of rangeland taken from them over the years! Will this new law save the Nevada Herds when the PTB in that state are so keen to see them gone?
We can only hope this law will save them.
