Horse Slaughtering Proposal
Republican Senator Mike Faulk of Kingsport says he may bring back a bill back concerning the practice of Slaughtering horses. He says it depends on its movement in the House. That proposal seeks to encourage the practice in Tennessee but the vote has been stalled in the Legislature. The measure was in fact withdrawn from consideration in the Senate Commerce, Labor and Agriculture Committee as sponsors say it is a necessary way to dispose of unwanted horses in a humane way. Opponents of the bill argue that it would unfairly discourage legal challenges of horse slaughter or processing plants. (bg)
