Iowa Update: Bill Number Changed, but Concerns Remain

(Friday, February 21, 2014)
Due to a common legislative procedure in Iowa, the bill number for the onerous breeder bill has changed. Therefore, Senate File 2166 is now Senate File 2254. There are a few differences in the fees assessed to shelters and pounds, but the concerns that AKC has with the bill remain.

Please continue to contact the Iowa State Senate and ask them to OPPOSE Senate File 2254. Click here to find the name and contact information for your State Senator. Contact information for the full Senate can be found here. When you contact them, be sure they know you are an Iowa resident!
