Congressma Jim Moran of northern Virginia has been an outspoken advocate of animal rights on Capitol Hill. He serves as a senior member of the Appropriations Committee and a Ranking Member on the Subcommittee on the Interior and Environment. Congressman Moran has a long history of supporting the humane treatment of animals in the United States.

This coming week he plans to reintroduce a bill to the House of Representatives that would ban the use of gas chambers to euthanize shelter animals. Use of the gas chamber for euthanasia is already banned in 20 states to the extreme cruelty involved. Congressman Moran’s bill would make this practice illegal in all 50 states.
