Connecticut House Bill 6690 (aka, File No. 698) will be considered by the Joint Environment Committee tomorrow, May 14, at 9:45AM. 


The American Kennel Club (AKC) is concerned with unintended consequences that may result from the legislation, including the possibility that individual ownership rights could be diminished in ways similar to states that have animal “guardianship” instead of animal “ownership”.


It is of utmost importance that all concerned dog owners in Connecticut who haven’t already contacted the members of the Joint Environment Committee, listed below, in opposition to HB 6690 do so today.  Let them know you oppose HB 6690/File No. 698 as currently written.
