Clant Seay Obituary, Cause Of Death – There were times when Clant and we had our differences of opinion, but we were always able to work through them and go on. The late United States Senator Joe Tydings, who was also our friend, was the primary author of the Horse Protection Act of 1970, and he entrusted both Clant and me with the responsibility of protecting his legacy and continuing the fight after he passed away.
When he passed away, he entrusted me with the responsibility of protecting his legacy and Clant with the responsibility of continuing the fight. Clant traveled all the way from Virginia to Maryland for the memorial service held in honor of Senator Tydings not long after his death. After that, he went to the Harris Teeter in NOMA and we had a talk there. There, he observed House Speaker Nancy Pelosi as well as House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer.
Throughout the course of that discussion, nearly at the same time, the words “U.S. Senator Joseph D. Tydings PAST Act” came out of each of our mouths. After that, we changed the name of the PAST Act to the U.S. Senator Joseph D. Tydings Memorial Prevent All Soring Tactics Act and worked together with the Tydings family, as well as across party lines and rhetoric, to get it passed through the House of Representatives.
The PAST Act is now officially known as the PAST Act. In honor of Senator Joseph D. Kennedy, this measure was given his name. It was impossible to deny that it was “a God thing,” and the Lord was illuminating the path to success for our team. Once we had obtained 308 cosponsors for the measure in July of 2019, it was successful under a new rule that granted it the opportunity to bypass the Committee procedure and advance directly to the House floor without going through the process of being considered by the Committee. In other words, it was successful under the new rule because it allowed it to take advantage of the opportunity to bypass the Committee procedure.
