Plenty of proposed bills regarding pets and animal issues are before the California legislature these days, and movement on them seems to come in bunches.
SB318, a bill that allows property forfeitures that were acquired through dogfighting has passed out of committee by a unanimous vote. A second Senate hearing/vote is scheduled for this week.
The biggest bill for pet owners, SB 250, the Responsible Pet Owner's Act, sponsored by Senator Dean Florez, is up for a full Senate vote sometime between June 2 and June 5. Now is the time to get your letters of support in to the Senator's office, even if you've sent them before. Go to their web site for full details.
Let's make this the year that companion animals get a little respect.
