Oklahoma Breeders Bill Heading to Senate Conference

(Wednesday, April 22, 2009)

Today, the Oklahoma Senate voted 30-to-16 in favor of House Bill 1332. If signed into law by Governor Henry, the bill will affect many responsible dog breeders in Oklahoma. HB 1332 will now be sent to a Senate conference committee, which will work on amendments. If the bill survives the conference committee, it will be returned to the Senate for another vote.

Members and staff of the Senate conference committee are expected to be appointed next week, and meetings are expected to be scheduled soon thereafter. The American Kennel Club Government Relations Department will report any and all new developments, including contact information for conference committee members, as developments warrant.
