Rep. David Trone, a Democrat who represents Maryland’s 6th Congressional District, is a champion for animals and taxpayers, and White Coat Waste Project is proud to honor him with our 2020 Congressional Waste Warrior award (”U.S. Rep. Trone opts for reelection rather than a run for Maryland governor,” May 7).
Representative Trone has led key initiatives to stop painful and outdated taxpayer-funded experiments on dogs, cats and other animals that most people oppose and that cost Americans over $20 billion every year. He’s also behind efforts to give animals a second chance in loving homes when testing in government labs ends.
Our 3 million members in Maryland and beyond are lucky to have Mr. Trone in Washington protecting animals from abuse and taxpayers from wasteful government spending.
