Federal Legislation: Current Issues & New Ideas
What kind of legislation has been introduced in Congress to stop animal cruelty? What can we do to make sure it gets passed into law? In this webinar, Alicia Prygoski, Legislative Affairs Manager, will address the shortcomings for animal protection in current federal law, give an overview of pending legislation, and discuss what we’d like to see introduced in the future. We’ll cover bills designed to protect captive wildlife, endangered species, companion animals, farmed animals, and more. A Q&A will follow.
