The Great Ape Protection Act, H.R. 1326

On March 5th, 2009, U.S. Representatives Edolphus Towns (D-NY), David Reichert (R-WA), James Langevin (D-RI), and Roscoe Bartlett (R-MD) reintroduced the Great Ape Protection Act, H.R. 1326 to end invasive biomedical research and testing on an estimated 1000 chimpanzees remaining in U.S. laboratories. The bill would also retire approximately 600 federally owned chimpanzees currently in laboratories - many for more than 40 years - to permanent sanctuary. The bill was originally introduced on April 17th, 2008."

Letter Writing

Keeping a strong and steady pace since its introduction in early March, the Great Ape Protection Act (H.R. 1326) has, of as today, the support of 45 cosponsors. The bill is currently in the House Committee on Energy and Commerce.

Project R&R thanks all our supporters who contacted their legislators. YOUR outreach has led to this ever-growing bi-partisan list of sponsors so critical to help ensure the bill’s success.

» If your legislator is not signed on, ask them to cosponsor the Great Ape Protection Act (H.R. 1326.)"
