SB907 was introduced by Senator Yaw to create an advisory board to review any and all animal legislation prior to being forwarded to the legislators for consideration. This advisory board would also be tasked with reviewing and recommending changes to current existing PA State animal laws.
The advisory board is comprised of representatives from a variety of organizations that have an interest in animal welfare as well as animal rights.
To be truthful and transparent, simply put, it will be the battleground for newly introduced legislation as well as advocating changes in existing legislation.
The entire legislative body is tired of animal bills and obviously believes that a group of animal representatives is the best option to sort them all out before they have to hear about them. Essentially, we will be doing their job for them, and relieving their staff of what they believe to be non essential legislation.
We encourage each and every animal owner/breeder/kennel to contact your representatives and ask them to support this advisory board creation.
If you want to see less legislative animal bills introduced and changes made to existing animal legislation, you need to be proactive and make the calls or send them an email.
For the first time in many years, because of the extensive work done by the PFDC Legislative Committee, our voices will be heard, loud and clear. The animal rights movement has had control of legislative issues for far too long.
Help us to help you...make those calls. If you are unsure of your representatives, kindly send us an email and we will assist you.
