RE: [RC] Congress to Examine Horse Racing - Kitley, Carrie E Civ USAF AFSPC 30 MDSS/SGSLF

I think there are enough members in Congress to perform all of the above.  
EVERYTHING needs to be regulated to some degree.  Granted, gas, healthcare, 
etc. ARE very important but so are the creatures we hold so dear.

<BIG SIGH>  I realize that there is a lot of bad stuff going on in the horse 
racing industry these days.  But I would much rather see Congress work on the 
important stuff like the cost of gasoline/diesel, health care, food shortages 
and so forth.  After all, I didn't send my senators and congressmen to DC to 
investigate steroid use in sports, or horse racing.  JMHO

Subject: [RC]   Congress to Examine Horse Racing

Article in Horse.com (Originally published at BloodHorse.com.) 

The United States House Subcommittee on Commerce, Trade, and Consumer
Protection has scheduled a hearing--"Breeding, Drugs, and Breakdowns: The
State of Thoroughbred Horseracing and the Welfare of the Thoroughbred
Racehorse"--for June 19 in Washington, D.C. 

According to a June 11 release from the House Committee on Energy and
Commerce, the hearing will look at "commercial breeding practices that
emphasize speed and precocity over durability, the prevalence of
performance-enhancing drugs and other medications, track surfaces, and
maintenance of the tracks."
