A bill that would make a state-funded loan of up to $1 million available to construct a horse slaughtering facility in South Dakota is scheduled for a hearing in the state's Senate Agriculture Committee Jan. 29.
Legislators introduced horse slaughter prevention bills simultaneously Jan. 17 in both the United States House of Representatives and Senate in an effort to increase public awareness. Last year the bill was passed in the House with a 263 to 146 vote, but the Senate adjourned before members were able to vote on the bill.
A bill in the U.S. Senate that aims to end horse slaughter for human consumption will most likely be put on hold until next year.
