Anderson to discuss anti-soring bill on Norman Goldman radio show

Dennis Anderson, the Democratic challenger to incumbent U.S. Rep. Randy Hultgren, R-Winfield, in the Nov. 4 election, will be a guest on the Norman Goldman radio show at 5:30 p.m. Friday, Aug. 8, to talk about a bill tthat bans the cruel practice of horse soring, a campaign spokesman said.

The show is broadcast on 92.5-FM at 8:20 a.m.

Soring involves injuring the front legs and hooves of Tennessee Walking horses and other breeds with high gaits to force them to step higher. Although already illegal, the Prevent All Soring Tactics Act, House Resolution 1518, would increase enforcement and penalties for those who do it.

Hultgren is one of two Illinois Congressmen who are not co-sponsoring the bill, which has wide bipartisan support. Anderson was critical of Hultgren not supporting the bill, which is currently stalled in a house committee.

In a letter to a constituent seeking his support, Hultgren said he would keep it in mind if the bill ever comes up for a vote. A Hultgren campaign spokesman said the congressman's primary focus right now is jobs.
