AKC Launches New Canine Legislation Tracking System

(Wednesday, May 06, 2009)

The AKC is pleased to announce the launch of the new AKC Government Relations Legislation Tracking Service.  This new service enables you to check the status of all 2009 canine legislation in each of the 50 states, as well as federal legislation.

To use this service, go to the AKC Government Relations web page, www.akc.org/canine_legislation and click on the large "AKC Government Relations 2009 Legislation Tracking" icon.  This will bring you to a new page with a clickable map of the United States.  To view federal legislation, click on the "US Fed" icon to the right of the map. You can also click on any state to view that state‚Äôs pending canine legislation, the latest legislative developments, the progress of specific bills, and, if applicable, AKC legislative alerts and messages. In addition, you can view the actual text of the bill or read a brief official legislative summary.

The AKC does not have a position on every bill posted; rather, this service is meant as a reference tool for you to see all the issues being considered in your state.

We hope you will enjoy using this new service of the AKC Government Relations Department.

Any questions or comments regarding this new service should be directed to the AKC Government Relations Department at (919) 816-3720 or doglaw@akc.org.
