About Us [cached]
-In 2008, Nancy Nighswander, our federal legislation director, along with Bill Hanka met with the leaders of the US House Committee to voice their opposition to the bill, and UAPPEAL sent Primatologist Dr Sian Evans as our witness to give testimony in opposition of the Captive Primate Safety Act before the US House Subcommittee.
UAPPEAL hires Bill Hanka of Hanka Advisor, LLC to help guide us in the federal legislative arena and represent us in Washington. We have worked closely with him over the past few years. His experience working with legislatures and his sound advice have been instrumental in fighting legislation which negatively affects the non-traditional animal industry.
