I am writing to request that USDA/APHIS immediately restore the searchable database of animal welfare enforcement information. For years this information has served as a crucial tool to provide transparency on the operations for thousands of animal industries. It is the only way for the public to know about accountability and compliance under the federal Animal Welfare Act. This information relates to many tax-payer funded operations being carried out under federal law. The American public deserves access to this information without delay.
