Thank you for taking the time to contact me regarding H.R. 3526, the Conserving Ecosystems by Ceasing the Importation of Large (CECIL) Animal Trophies Act. Your views and opinions are valuable to me as I consider the important issues of the day.
As you may know, the CECIL Act would curb the trophy hunting of species that are threatened or endangered, such as the African Lion. As an animal lover, I believe it is important to value and protect all endangered species for the larger role they play in our ecosystem. I understand your concerns regarding wildlife protection and, while there has not been a vote scheduled for this bill, please be assured that I will keep your views in mind should the CECIL Act come before the full House of Representatives.
