I just received a newsletter from Animal Place, a farm animal sanctuary, asking for help in stopping legislation that’s harmful to animals and those striving to protect animals.
Below are two bills that need action taken.
AB 815 & AB 2427 — Oppose
Both AB 2427 and AB 815 are on Governor Schwarzenegger’s desk for signing. Please take action TODAY!
AB 2427 (Assemblymember Eng) takes away the rights of cities and counties to enact a multitude of animal welfare laws. It is sponsored by the California Veterinary Medical Association, who has been vigorously trying to overturn West Hollywood’s ban on the painful declawing of cats.
AB 815 — Hunting and Fishing -(Assemblymember Berryhill) takes away the rights of cities and counties to enact local wildlife-related laws. If signed into laws, the ONLY entity in the state permitted to make regulations regarding hunting and fishing in California would be the Department of Fish and Game.
WHAT YOU CAN DO:
Contact the Governor at http://gov.ca.gov/interact#contact and ask him to VETO both AB 815 and AB 2427.
Thanks for caring! /Gary
