Grijalva Highlights 100 Percent Rating From Animal Welfare Institute – Scoring Includes Support for ROAM Act He Introduced

Washington, D.C.– The Animal Welfare Institute has given Rep. Raúl M. Grijalva, who chairs the House Subcommittee on National Parks, Forests and Public Lands, a perfect rating on its newly released Compassion Index scorecard for the 111th Congress. The score reflects Grijalva’s support or co-sponsorship of eight bills, including the Restore Our American Mustangs (ROAM) Act that he introduced with Rep. Nick Rahall.

“I’m proud of my record on conservation, endangered species and other animal protection issues, and I wholeheartedly accept the Institute’s support,” Grijalva said. “Animal welfare touches on many aspects of national policy, and it’s always important to consider our votes’ impact on wildlife and environmental quality. The Institute has given us all an important reminder of why it’s important to champion wild horse preservation, endangered species protection and other causes that often don’t receive the attention they deserve.”

The group has created a searchable database for every Member of Congress. Grijalva’s results are viewable in detail below and at this link.
