We’ve enlisted bipartisan support in the House and Senate. Now, a former speechwriter for the Secretaries of Treasury and Labor under President George W. Bush is urging President-elect Donald Trump to support the White Coat Waste Project’s work to end wasteful government experimentation on dogs and other animals.
In her new U.S. News and World Report column, Jean Card writes:
Trump will also have an opportunity to support what appears to be a very nice, bipartisan movement that protects animals and reduces government waste – another Trump priority. An interesting group called “White Coat Waste” is currently calling on Congress to look into the questionable necessity and expense of government research using beagles, primates and other real, live cutie pies. (Who knew, right?) Their campaign has already inspired members of Congress to hold hands across the aisle and demand answers from the Government Accountability Office about what, exactly, is being done to animals, and why, at taxpayer expense (an expense most people don’t support).
Help us ensure that decision makers get the message. If you haven’t yet, please contact your Members of Congress and urge them to end wasteful experiments on dogs and other animals in government laboratories.
