Ohio Legislation Update

(Monday, July 20, 2009)

The AKC Government Relations Department continues to monitor and address legislative developments in Ohio.

House Bill 124 was heard by the House Agriculture and Natural Resources Committee. No action was taken on the bill. Additionally, Senate Bill 95, HB 124's companion, was temporarily sidelined while the Senate dealt with Ohio's budget crisis. However, since Governor Strickland signed a new budget into law on Friday, July 17th, the AKC expects developments regarding these bills soon.

The AKC continues to oppose certain provisions of these bills, and will report any developments as they warrant.
