The Great Ape Protection Act

Bill’s Cosponsors Show Growing SUPPORT!

As of today, 54 representatives have signed on to the Great Ape Protection Act (GAPA, H.R. 1326) as cosponsors, showing steady and growing support for the bill in Congress. “We have no doubt that outreach efforts made by Project R&R supporters nationwide have led to legislators getting thousands of letters, postcards, and phone calls, contributing to the bill’s growing support,” says Jennifer Campbell, Director of Member Services for NEAVS/Project R&R. “This is grassroots citizenry at its finest. The American public wants an end to chimpanzee research in the U.S. – the Great Ape Protection Act will deliver that goal.”

The Great Ape Protection Act is currently in the House Energy and Commerce Committee. Project R&R is asking everyone to contact their representatives to cosponsor the bill – something especially important if your representative is a member of the Energy and Commerce committee.
