6th district congressman Bob Goodlatte is opposed to the Horse Slaughter Prevention Act. It's a bill that calls for an end to the slaughtering of horses for human consumption. Local supporters of the bill say it's necessary to end what they call "inhumane" treatment of horses. Goodlatte argues the bill won't solve that problem and says there's simply not enough money to take care of the unwanted horses that usually go to slaughterhouses.
