Congressman Steve Cohen has scored a 100+ on the Humane Society Legislative Fund’s 2015 Humane Scorecard.
All Members of Congress were rated based upon their votes on several key votes, including votes to phase out cosmetics testing on animals, votes to strengthen animal cruelty laws, and votes to prevent ivory importation laws from being weakened.
Congressman Cohen voted in accordance with the wishes of the Humane Society 100% of the time and was awarded a “+” for his leadership in sponsoring the Prevent All Soring Tactics (PAST) Act to ban horse soring.
“Our treatment of animals is a reflection of how we treat each other, and we should each do all we can to do better on both fronts,” Congressman Cohen said. ” I will continue my efforts in Congress to ensure that animals are protected and treated humanely.”
Started in 1954, the Humane Society cares for and provides services to more than 100,000 animals per year and has become the largest advocacy group on behalf of anmials in the United States.
