In her widely-read Washington Times column today, author and FOX News contributor Tammy Bruce slammed the USDA’s decision to delete its animal welfare database, and praised White Coat Waste Project’s work with Congress on the FACT Act to increase transparency about taxpayer-funded animal experiments:

Just as the USDA made its move against transparency, the good news is a bipartisan (Republican-led) bill is now in the congressional hopper. Politico reported, “Rep. Ken Calvert, California Republican, [introduced a bill] that would require federal agencies, including USDA, to disclose how many animals they’re using for scientific testing. It would amend a 2000 law, also sponsored by Mr. Calvert, that asks agencies to move away from using animals in experiments.”

“The bill was written in partnership with the White Coat Waste Project, an animal welfare group that seeks to attract Republicans by making an argument about government waste in animal testing. The group estimates that at least $20 billion is spent a year on animal testing in government labs, though there’s no official number. ‘This is an accountability and transparency issue,” said Justin Goodman, the group’s vice president of advocacy and public policy,’ ” Politico said.
