I wonder what position Dog Gone took on this bill? Always interesting to see how Liberals respond when their oxes are being gored.
HF84/SF36 – Animal Law
This legislation requires the Board of Animal Health to license and inspect dog and cat breeders that have ten or more adult animals and produce more than five litters per year. The bill provides a standard for animal care that must be met and companion penalties and procedures for licensed breeders that do not meet the standards. The Animal Law section took a position in support of this legislation. Despite some vocal opposition in committees, the House included the language from this bill in their supplemental appropriations bill (HF3172). The Senate did not follow suit, so the issue will be resolved in a conference committee in the upcoming weeks.
So I guess that’s a question…
