We’ve finally got a long-awaited bill, that we really wish we didn’t need.
Last week we told you about our coming bipartisan effort to stop federal government labs from spending a single cent of your tax dollars ever again to buy cats and dogs for slaughter at China’s disgusting live animal markets.
Well, we are thrilled to tell you: the bill (S. 3628) has officially been filed!
Bill lead U.S. Senator Joni Ernst (R-IA)–a 2019 WCW Waste Warrior awardee–and WCW VP Justin Goodman joined Scott Taylor with Washington, DC’s WJLA to discuss why this legislation is so badly needed.
Here is a look at my #7OnYourSide interview with @SenJoniErnst & @JustinRGoodman with @WhiteCoatWaste about a new bill being introduced to ban taxpayer’s money from funding China wet markets. See the entire interview later today over on @ABC7News pic.twitter.com/5uwtAjdrBX

We’re calling this legislation Delilah’s Law, after a cat who survived the wasteful government experiments that forced kittens to eat cat meat purchased from China’s wet markets, and that WCW exposed and ended last year. (We brought Delilah to Capitol Hill to meet the lawmakers who saved her, last year.)
We got the kitten slaughterhouse shut down, and now we’re working with lawmakers to make sure none of your money is ever used to support wet markets again.
Thank you to Senators Ernst, Jeff Merkley (D-OR), Mike Braun (R-IN), Joe Manchin (D-WV) and Kelly Loeffler (R-GA) for their leadership in introducing this very important legislation—to prevent the U.S. government from wasting any more of your tax dollars at China’s wet markets where wildlife, and cats and dogs, are sold and butchered for human consumption.
