Animal Welfare Institute's Compassion Index

A couple of days ago, I posted about the Humane Scorecard put out by the Humane Legislative Fund. A commenter offered another resource and rather than have it buried in the comments, I thought it deserved a post of its own:
I also suggest you visit AWI's Compassion Index (www.compassionindex.org), an interactive legislative tracking and action center. This site is updated as actions take place and presents a similar grim picture of the proactive positions for many legislators on animal welfare legislation.

Rep. Wexler has the highest CI ranking in Florida while both Senators have a 0. Only four members of the Senate acheive a 100% while only 14 out of 435 receive a 100% in the House.

Everyone should visit www.compassionindex.org and contact your representatives and urge them to support the important animal protection legislation currently before the Congress. You can check the site daily to see if they have taken action.
