We received word from Melissa Roberts Schlough that HB63, a bill to prohibit breed specific legislation on the state level, has passed it’s first step with a unanimous vote and is moving on to the Judiciary Committee. Though a date has not been set yet this could be called up at any time.
New Mexico Residents: It is important to contact the members of the judiciary committee and let them know that their constituents support HB63. Your continued support is needed to see HB63 become law in New Mexico! Please contact your representatives , and as always be the best advocate possible for the dogs by being factual and polite.
For more information on HB63 and to track the bills progress see our previous post here.
The bills sponsor Yvette Herrel will be on Pit Bulletin Legal News Radio to talk about the bill on February 5th at 8PM EST.
