February 23, 2016
Louisiana horsemen are encouraged to contact their representatives immediately as House Bill 100 goes to the floor today, Wednesday, February 24, at 4 p.m.
House Bill 100 "Eliminates certain statutory dedication and eliminates certain dedications of certain funds".
According to the Louisiana Quarter Horse Breeders Association, LQHBA members should call or email their representative in support of Rep. Major Thibaut's bill, and ask them:
• To please follow Rep. Major Thibaut's lead on HB 100 in supporting the horsemen
• Our industry has a 2.5 Billion dollar economic impact to our State
• If funds are undedicated then the stability/uncertainty in the horse industry will more than likely create job loss
• We appreciate you standing up for the horse industry
Contact the House Switch Board at 225-342-6945 and tell them to carry this message to your Representative. Next, please call your Representative’s office and tell their staff.
