Paul Locke of the Center for Alternatives for Animal Testing at Johns Hopkins University said more must be done to require agencies including U.S. EPA, the National Institutes of Health and the Food and Drug Administration along with the chemical industry to end animal testing during a congressional briefing on Capitol Hill on Tuesday September 13th. Speaking at the briefing was Representative James Moran, who is ranking member of the House Appropriation Committee's subcommittee on Interior, Environment and Related Agencies and co-chair of the Congressional Animal Protection Caucus (CAPC). CAPC is a group staffed by both parties that seeks to raise awareness of animal welfare issues in Congress. CAPC replaced the "Friends of Animals Caucus" that had existed in previous Congresses.
