On Wednesday, March 10, 2021, at 9am, the House Ways and Means Committee will consider the Amended HB 532, concerning amended animal records database language. The changes made by the House Environment and Agriculture Committee in Amended HB 532 address the concerns raised by AKC Government Relations (AKC GR) and New Hampshire Dog Owners of the Granite State (NH DOGS).
AKC GR’s prior alert listing those concerns can be viewed here.
