Four members of the
California State legislature, Sens. Tony Strickland (R-Thousand Oaks) and Dean Florez (D-Shafter), and Assembly members Pedro Nava (D-Santa Barbara) and Cameron Smyth (R-Santa Clarita), have created a bipartisan caucus to focus on animal issues in . California
I couldn’t be more pleased, especially in seeing that the
Central Valley’s own Dean Florez is one of the charter members. In a state as large as ours we have a host of animal issues that require concerted, thoughtful approaches. It’s heartening to see that there are a few legislators who believe that these issues are important as well. I look forward to hearing more from them as the caucus gets fully underway. In the meantime, if you care about critters and one of these representatives is from your area make sure you drop them a little note of thanks.
