State Representatives Examining Dog Law!
I would like to thank Tamara Harding for bringing to our attention that recently, Representative Denlinger of, where else?.... Lancaster, got a proposal passed in the house agricultural committee that enables them to do a study of the economic impact of the Dog Law. He claims it is not a lead up to changing or weakening the law but a way to introduce tax credits to help those who have made substantial capital investments in their kennel business and are in trouble due to the dog law. The question is, do these kennels deserve to be helped? And why are they using tax payer dollars to do a study in order to help the poor puppy mills. I called Rep Reichley's office to get the actual proposal document so I will know more(hopefully) after reading it. The woman I spoke with was very helpful.
The ASPCA is definitely alarmed and concerned about this proposal and is urging everyone to contact their Representative about it. Here's a way to do it! Please be polite! It works!
I personally think a phone call is worth 1000 emails. I would also call your Rep and politely voice your concern about this proposal. Click here to find your state Rep.
