During the first meeting of the General Assembly’s bipartisan Animal Advocacy Caucus earlier this month, nearly all of the 19 legislators introducing themselves said they were there because they love animals. Our kind of people!

The Animal Advocacy Caucus is co-Chaired by Representative David Michel and Rep. Nicole Klarides-Ditria. Members and stakeholders briefly reviewed the more than 30 bills relating to animal and environmental protection that had been introduced so far, and shared some thoughts on the merits, support and opposition for each. If your lawmakers are on the list of Animal Advocacy Caucus members, consider taking a moment to thank them and ask for their continued support.
