The Humane Society of the U.S. (HSUS) is proposing that an Animal Protection Liaison be appointed in the White House. HSUS wants this person to coordinate animal-protection concerns including policy issues, legislation and regulations. HSUS also advocates the appointment of an Assistant U.S. Attorney to head a new Animal Protection Division in the Department of Justice, “similar to the Civil Rights Division, to ensure strong enforcement of federal animal-protection laws.”
