Letter: A win for dogs, thanks to Rep. Bishop

Kudos to U.S. Rep. Mike Bishop, R-Rochester, for his outstanding leadership on stopping wasteful government spending on outdated and inhumane dog experiments. Last month, President Trump signed a spending bill that includes language cutting funds for painful dog experiments at the Department of Veterans Affairs.

As our watchdog group first exposed, for years the VA was secretively spending our tax dollars to give puppies heart attacks, cut into their brains, and sever their spinal cords. Bishop helped lead a bipartisan coalition that has been tirelessly working to end this waste and abuse opposed by a supermajority of voters, most veterans and many national veterans’ groups.
