Hi everyone - this week's animal issues legislative update is attached; please see the Pending Legislation chart for new activity, including the introduction of the Working Animal Protection Act in Missouri.
Also, a quick update on CT HB 5248 (to prohibit performing animals) -- I checked the Environment Committee's meeting calendar, and the bill has not appeared on the Committee agenda yet. There was a meeting scheduled 1-18-19, but the bill was not included, and there are no further meetings or hearings posted for January. I will keep monitoring. In the meantime, listed below is the contact information for the Environment Committee members; please feel free to copy and paste to share with your members and contacts to send messages of opposition to this HB 5248. Thank you! [read more]
