Yesterday, amended Vermont Senate Bill 155, which would provide administrative support to the state’s Animal Cruelty Investigative Advisory Board (ACIAB), was voted favorably by the Vermont Senate. The amended bill, which is supported by both the American Kennel Club (AKC) and the Vermont Federation of Dog Clubs (VT Federation), will now advance to the Vermont House for consideration.
Thank you to the Vermont residents who contacted their state senator requesting support! For details on how the bill would benefit domestic animal welfare in the state, view AKC’s prior alert.
AKC will continue to provide updates on amended SB 155. For more information on it or other legislative issues in Vermont, contact AKC’s Government Relations Department at 919-816-3720 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
