Over the last year, several groups have been pushing for a statewide breed ban or breed-specific legislation in Texas. To combat this, Love-A-Bull and StopBSL have been running a petition against BSL over the last year.
The petition, signatures, and informational material will be submitted to each of Texas’ 31 state senators and 150 state representatives on January 10th, 2011.
We have collected nearly 7,000 signatures to date. Texas residents: Please make sure your signatures are counted! Please mail your signature pages by January 3rd, 2011 so we can add them to the package.
Blank signature pages can be downloaded here: http://love-a-bull.org/resources/bsl/petition/. The mailing address is at the bottom of each signature page.
If you are mailing close to the deadline and concerned that your pages might not make it in time, you may also scan your pages as PDFs and email them to firstname.lastname@example.org. (Please make sure to send the pages via USPS after you email them. We need the hard copies too!)
I would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you for helping with this effort. Over the last year, the petition has raised awareness about the threat of BSL; it has connected concerned Texans; and it has told (and will tell) our state legislators where we, the public, stand. Your hard work and efforts have been valuable and significant–including those of you who do not live in Texas but have taken the time to spread the word about the petition. We could not have done this without you. Thank you!
