AKC Continues to Monitor Ohio Breeders Bills

The American Kennel Club Canine Legislation Department continues to monitor developments with Ohio...

The American Kennel Club Canine Legislation Department continues to monitor developments with Ohio Senate Bill 173, and its companion, House Bill 223.  SB 173 will be considered by the Ohio Senate Local Government and Veteran’s Affairs Committee tomorrow, Tuesday, June 26th, at 10AM, during which only legislative sponsor and proponent testimony will be heard.  No testimony from constituents in opposition to this bill will be heard tomorrow.  The Ohio Legislature is scheduled to begin its summer recess next week and further consideration of SB 173 by the Senate Local Government and Veterans Affairs Committee will occur only when the legislature reconvenes, most likely in early September.    

The AKC has been monitoring and addressing the situation in Ohio since July 2006, when the original House Bill 606 was introduced.  The Canine Legislation Department will continue to monitor and report developments in Ohio as they warrant.
