Senate Bill 2345, An Act ProtectingAnimal Welfare and Safety, moved one step closer to final passage today, as the
Senate concurred with a technical amendment the House made to the bill on the
last day of formal sessions July 31st.
The latest bill reflects many of the elements contained in the original PAWS Act (Senate Bill 1914), which I filed in October of 2013 with the support of 75 legislative co-sponsors. Passage of this animal protection bill has been one of my top priorities for the 2013-2014 legislative session.
