Press Release

Washington, D.C. - Congressman Adrian Smith (R-NE) today reacted to the report released by the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) on the consequences of a 2007 restriction on horse processing.

"The GAO report makes it clear ending horse processing has had a detrimental effect on both the economy and animal welfare," Smith said. "In light of this information, Congress should re-evaluate this misguided policy to allow responsible horse management which would create jobs, generate revenue, and strengthen a struggling horse industry."
