AB 241, The Responsible Breeder Act, passed the full Assembly by a vote of 60 to 14, a more than 4 to 1 margin. See the vote results by clicking here.
No thanks, of course, to the elected officials in my area, Assemblymembers Jean Fuller and Danny Gilmore, neither of whom voted in favor of the bill, which limits ownership of intact animals to 50.
The bill also allows peace officers to inspect places where animals are bred or maintained and to inspect the records of an individual or business.
Next up, the bill moves to Senate committees for consideration.
