We were thrilled to receive the news from our friends at Project R&R (Release & Restitution for Chimpanzees in U.S. Laboratories) today that the Great Ape Protection and Cost Savings Act has been reintroduced in the 112th Congress. HR1513/S810 has the leadership of Rep. Roscoe Bartlett (R-MD) as well as 42 cosponsors. Formerly known as the Great Ape Protection Act, we're hopeful that the addition of the “Cost Savings” element will be just the ticket this bill needs to pass both House and Senate. If you'd like to add your voice to the many supporting this effort, you'll find several ways to do so at ReleaseChimps.org.
