ANIMAL ISSUES LEGISLATIVE UPDATE
November 7, 2019
The PACT Act passed the House last week and has also now passed the Senate. It is ready for the President to either sign it into law or veto it.
Proposition 10 in Texas overwhelmingly passed which gives handlers of military and law enforcement dogs the option to adopt them after service.The case for Nosey the elephant was dismissed on November 4th in the city of Moulton, Alabama. Which is actually good news as it will allow the Liebels to file an appeal with higher courts.
