ECO Living: News Update

On November 20th, 2019 while everyone in DC listens to the impeachment hearings and prepared for the 5th Democratic debt. There was a bill on the house floor waiting for a vote.

A bill called Shark Fin Sales Elimination Act, H.R 737. This bill would end all commercial trade in the United States. This included all imports, exports, trade, distribution and possession for commercial purposes of shark fins or products containing shark fins. A trade that Americans overwhelmingly oppose!

Yesterday the U.S House said a decisive and resounding “NO” to the brutal shark fin trade. House members voted 310 to 107 to PASS this bill (H.R 737). As I use this post to thank those members of Congress who voted to PASS this bill I will also bring to light the representatives who seem to support a trade in which fishermen cut the fins of sharks while alive and then dump them back in the ocean to die.

Below is the list of their last names, If you are curious about their party affiliations, here is the layout 2 Democrats, 104 Republicans & 1 Independent voted “nay” on this bill.
