As the state legislature continues to meet and hold hearings, there are three important animal welfare bills we need to encourage our lawmakers to support – H.B. 33 which will require social workers and other professions to report animal abuse (action alert), H.B. 350 which would make bestiality and cockfighting a crime throughout the state (action alert), and S.B. 205 which would increase the penalties for animal cruelty (action alert).  Please contact your state legislators TODAY and ask them to move these bills through committees and floor sessions as they will break for recess soon.
