Wilhelm IV and Tsunami Beg Congress to Rescue their Friends Abroad
Roth's Dogs Ask Congress to Approve the Tariff Suspension and Trade Act and Save Dog and Cat Hides Around the World
WASHINGTON -- Senate Finance Committee William V. Roth, Jr's (R-DE) beloved St. Bernards, Wilhelm IV and Tsunami, today urged Congress to pass H.R. 4868, the Tariff Suspension and Trade Act of 2000, which contains provisions to ban the importation of products made with dog and cat fur.
"Every day, thousands of our friends abroad are cruelly executed for their fur. As St. Bernards, we're known for our search and rescue missions. With this one, we hope to save millions of our cat and dog friends abroad," stated Wilhelm IV and Tsunami. "We want this horrible practice to end and today we are asking Congress to pass the Tariff Suspension and Trade Act of 2000 and help save our friends' hides."
Senate Finance Committee Chairman William V. Roth, Jr. (R-DE) authored this legislation that prohibits the importation of products made from dog and cat pelts and requires labeling of all fur products regardless of price. He included these provisions in his original Chairman's mark of the Tariff Suspension and Trade Act of 2000, which was favorably reported from the Finance Committee on September 19. The bill awaits Senate action.
