The American Horse Council’s Congressional “Scorecard” Released

One of the more challenging efforts when assessing friends and enemies on Capitol Hill, is evaluating their true involvement with an industry. Voting records serve a strong purpose in such an assessment yet are one dimensional.

The American Horse Council has created and designed a process to evaluate Members of Congress based on their involvement with the equine industry…the “American Horse Council Scorecard.”   

The “American Horse Council Scorecard” is a compilation of the most active Members of Congress on legislative issues impacting the equine industry. The Scorecard is based on a point system regarding (bill) sponsorship, co-sponsorship, Congressional Horse Caucus membership, and involvement with the American Horse Council (ie: event participation), in the 117th Congressional cycle.

The “American Horse Council Scorecard” is a fluid evaluation and will be updated periodically to reflect continued Congressional involvement in the industry. For the 117th Congressional cycle, the American Horse Council proudly announces the most active Members of Congress (House and Senate), to date, on equine issues on Capitol Hill.
