**This is a previously recorded program, originally recorded on December 1, 2016.
This panel will discuss legislative and regulatory priorities for animals before the next Congress and Administration, with a particular focus on companion animals and wildlife. From puppy mills to endangered species, this panel will cover the broad outlook for animals in 2016-17.
Our panelists will be Tracie Letterman, Acting Director of Regulatory Affairs at the Humane Society of the United States; William J. Snape, III, Senior Counsel at the Center for Biological Diversity and practitioner in residence at American University School of Law; Nancy Blaney, Senior Federal Policy Advisor at the Animal Welfare Institute; and Jason Rylander, Senior Staff Attorney at Defenders of Wildlife. The Panel will be moderated by Howard Crystal.
Tracie Letterman oversees all the federal legislative and regulatory work at HSUS, working with more than 10 different federal agencies and Congress to gain support for animal protection laws and seeking strong enforcement measures to ensure that all animals receive the protections they deserve. William (Bill) Snape works on endangered species, public lands and energy issues, has litigated a number of environmental and related cases in federal court, and serves on the President’s Trade and Environment Policy Advisory Committee. Nancy Blaney is responsible for working with federal and state legislators and regulators in support of improving animal welfare, the prosecution of animal cruelty crimes, and public awareness of the relationship between animal abuse and other forms of violence. Jason Rylander has litigated endangered species and habitat protection cases in federal courts across the country, including gray wolves, red wolves, grizzly bears, piping plovers, pygmy owls, red knots, and other imperiled species. Howard Crystal has litigated numerous animal protection cases, including those concerning the mistreatment of animals, such as pigeon shoots in Pennsylvania and wild horses in Nevada, as well as cases over conservation of imperiled species.
