INFORMATION RELATED TO THE BILL:
- “Horses deserve to be transported in as humane a manner as possible. Double-deck trailers do not provide adequate headroom for adult horses, and accidents involving double-deck trailers are a gruesome reminder that the practice is also dangerous to the driving public. I want to express my gratitude for the many years of hard work on this issue by my friend and colleague, the late Walter Jones of North Carolina.” (Source: Rep. Cohen, Press Release, 2/27/19)
