I have developed a ?very good working relationship with Representative Walker Hines and his staff, and they have asked us to appear at next Thursday's hearing before the Administration of Criminal Justice, where they will take up Bill 201, which is authored by Representative Walker. ?The bill creates an animal abusers registry, modeled after our state's sex crime's registry. ?It is a very positive and important bill, which we should all support. ?Please email the committee's members in support of House Bill 201. Their contact information appears below.
