The budget hearing for February 24th, 2010 at 10:30am EST —has been postponed. When the examination of the FY 2011 budget request for the Department of the Interior by Ken Salazar, Secretary is rescheduled we’ll be sure to post. More details here – no explanation for hearing postponement has been given.
We expect Secretary Salazar to push for $42 million for the first of 7 planned mid-western and eastern “preserves” for wild horses, please contact your Senators and let them know this is a bad idea and a waste of taxpayer money that flies in the face of the true intent of the 1971 Wild Horse and Burro Act to protect and preserve wild horses in the American west. Find your senators here. The “Salazoo Plan” only adds to the financial and humane train wreck that the Wild Horse and Burro Program has become, this is not the solution.
Please take action for our wild herds:
