Did our Minnesota lawmakers in Congress vote to protect animals?
The Humane Society Legislative Fund has announced the 2015 preliminary scorecard results for members of the U.S. Congress. The scorecard measures the votes and positions each legislator took on issues pertaining to animals. The items considered include if a member voted for or against a bill pertaining to animals, sponsored or co-sponsored animal legislation, or signed a letter supporting an animal issue. Legislators who sponsored a bill or led on a letter also received extra credit. See the entire scorecard here.
