This afternoon, the greyhound bill mentioned below passed the Florida Senate with a 25-14 vote. ARFF would like to thank everyone who contacted their state legislators in support of this important bill. You can find out how your state senator voted at this page. The bill needs to be reconciled with its counterpart in the Florida House of Representatives, and then will go to Florida Governor Rick Scott for his signature.
Next week, the Florida House of Representatives is expected to take up House Bill 125, which would prohibit sexual contact with animals. The Florida Senate has already unanimously passed its version of the bill. Check this blog next week for details about how you can help support this bill.
