Letter: Champion for Animals

Letter to the Editor

Congressman Ted Lieu (D-CA-33) is a champion for animals and taxpayers, and White Coat Waste Project is proud to honor him with a Congressional Waste Warrior award. He was also awarded in 2017 and is just one of a few lawmakers who’ve earned this recognition twice.

Rep. Lieu has led key initiatives to stop painful and outdated taxpayer-funded experiments on dogs, cats and other animals that most people oppose and that cost Americans over $20 billion every year. Among other accomplishments, he’s shut down deadly tests on puppies and kittens at the Los Angeles VA. Rep. Lieu is also behind efforts to give animals a second chance in loving homes when testing in government labs ends.

Our 3 million members in California and beyond are lucky to have Rep. Lieu in Washington protecting animals from abuse and taxpayers from wasteful government spending.
