New Yorkers Help the Carriage Horses!

Please help us by forwarding this e-mail regarding the New York State  bill to ban horse-drawn carriages in NYC.  

Thanks to all of you who have been sending e-mails and making calls to the NYS Legislature's Cities Committee.  Unfortunately, some  legislators' offices are saying  that most of the calls are coming from outside the state and not many from New York City. This is very, very disappointing.  This is our city and New Yorkers should be making most of the calls and sending most of the e-mails.  

The NYS bill S667 and A997, sponsored by Senator Tony Avella and Assemblymember Linda Rosenthal respectively, is the only bill to support.  It will prohibit the operation of horse-drawn carriages in NYC.  This is the only chance we really have of getting the horses off the street and if you will not make the calls - or send the e-mails  - then who?    The electric cars are not going to happen because the money does not exist.  The money raised is about equal to the money spent on  lobbying, PR, salaries and other expenses.  The price tag is $4,000,000 the first year with a total price tag of over $12,000,000.  This is reality.  

Please take some time and make the calls or at least send the e-mails.  
See below for instructions on what to say. 

We started this campaign in 2006.  But we have patience and we are not giving up.  Institutionalized cruelty takes a long time to change.  But we cannot do it without your help.  There is no pending vote.  This is basic lobbing and I will be calling on you from time to time to let legislators know that you want them to pass this bill. 

 There have been some changes in the Cities Committees.  Please note the highlighted names are all new and should be contacted.

And to those of you from outside of New York City -- heart felt thanks  for caring about the horses and contacting the legislators.  Please continue taking action.  You are the "tourists."  


to support S667 and A997

The best way to lobby your representative is to meet in person. If anyone wants to do that, please contact us atcoalition@banhdc.org. The next best thing is a snail mail letter. Please see ournewsletter from last week for the names of all the Cities Committee members and the links to their pages. Then comes phone calls. They are effective also. The telephone list is divided into Senate and Assembly - please make as many phone calls as you can. All you have to say is: My name is ______ and I live in ______ (borough or other city if not New York.) I am calling in support of S667 (or A997 if you are calling an Assemblymember.) I would like to know if Senator ______ (or Assemblymember _______ ) will sponsor this bill, which would prohibit the operation of horse-drawn carriages in New York City. Please get back to me on this issue. I will call back in a few days if I do not hear from you. " You should leave your e-mail , telephone number and/or address. If you live outside of New York City or state, please call anyway. This issue has resonated around the world and the carriage trade is frequented by tourists. If they ask for any information and they generally do not - and if you are not able to provide it - tell them you will get back to them and then contact us - coalition@banhdc.org.

E-mail addresses are deemed to be not as effective because they can be easily deleted. However, if you do not have the time to make phone calls and want to take the chance and write an e-mail - these are the groupings: SENATE lanza@senate.state.ny.us;jdefranc@nysenate.gov;grisanti@nysenate.gov;gball@nysenate.gov;breslin@senate.state.ny.us
