SeaWorld is taking another hit after a House Democrat proposed a new bill to shut down orca breeding.
The Orca Responsibility and Care Advancement Act has received support from animal rights groups and representatives of both parties.
Though it's still early for the ORCA Act, SeaWorld has been in hot water for a while.
The 2013 documentary "Blackfish" jump started all of this. The film focuses specifically on how captivity can cause aggression in orcas. It tells the story of a SeaWorld trainer who was killed while interacting with a whale.
After the film, attendance has steadily dropped. SeaWorld's stock fell 50 percent in 2014 and posted another disappointing quarterly earnings earlier this month. (Video via SeaWorld)
The decline led to SeaWorld CEO Jim Atchison stepping down in January of this year. Two months later he was replaced by Joel Manby, the former president of the company that owns Dollywood.
