Today, July 25, the U.S. Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works passed S.810, the Great Ape Protection and Cost Savings Act, out of committee. This is a vital initial step to end the use of chimpanzees in invasive biomedical research and retire all federally-owned chimpanzees to permanent sanctuary. Now the bill can be considered and voted on by the full Senate.
Thank you for contacting your senators and making this happen!
