Below is an update on the legislation FAAWO lobbied during the 2015 session:


  • Humane Disposal of Livestock (SB 420/HB 627) - According to HSUS, the House adopted the wording of SB 420 and this legislation is awaiting the Governor's signature
  • Pets' Trust Act (HB 207/SB 670) - DIED
  • Companion Animal Protection Act (HB 497/SB 1234) - DIED
  • Illegal Ivory Articles and Rhino Horns (SB 1120) - DIED and had no companion bill. This bill may be re-worked and re-introduced by Senator Altman in 2016.
  • Greyhound Injury Reporting (SB 2/HB 129) - SB 2 passed in the Senate but advocates were asked to focus on HB 1233, a gaming bill that included provisions for both mandatory greyhound injury reporting and decoupling. This bill may be addressed during the Special Session this summer.
