From the desk of Vanessa Gagne:
ANIMAL ISSUES LEGISLATIVE UPDATE

January 16th, 2020

UPDATES

Please help oppose FL SB 1048, which would allow for an animal to have a court appointed attorney in an animal cruelty case - this would give animals the same rights as American people in the 6th amendment of our Constitution.  The passing of such a decision would have long lasting and complex ramifications for the differentiation between human and animal legal rights.  It needs to be made clear that under no circumstances is anyone advocating for animal welfare or abuse cases to be neglected however it must be done under existing rule of law.  The bill text may be read here.
Please call the following representatives and politely request a "no" vote on SB 1048.
Senator David Simmons (850) 487-5009
Senator Jose Javier Rodriguez. 850) 487-5037
Senator Dennis Baxley. (850) 487-5012
Senator Audrey Gibson (850) 487-5006
Senator Travis Hutson 850) 487-5007
Senator Kelli Stargel. (850) 487-5022
