Don’t Let the Puppy Mill Bill Die!

posted April 28th, 2010 by

Now is probably the most important time to call your State Senator and tell them that you expect them to hold true to the vote that they cast yesterday on S.B. 1712.  After passing S.B. 1712 all were elated that there was finally going to be Puppy Mill regulation ending years of animal abuse and neglect.  Unfortunately, Senator Jay Paul Gumm, a Democrat from Dooorant, has employed one of our legislature’s favorite shenanigans and held the bill for reconsideration.  This is apparently when all of the cookies are passed out to change votes or to let the bill die without a vote so they can go home and say that they voted for it, but it didn’t come up again.  (You will recall the “Cock Fighting” legislation of years past).  Don’t be surprised when the vote goes the other way or doesn’t happen.  That is unacceptable!  Don’t let it happen.

You must not tire now. One more time, for the animals.  Call your Senator!  Do it NOW!

You can say: “My name is [your name] and I’m calling from [your town]. As a constituent, I’m calling to ask you not to let S.B. 1712 die and to hold true to your vote to protect dogs in Oklahoma puppy mills.”
