While the State Senate has passed its version of the bill, the Assembly has not, and Assembly leadership still has not scheduled this important legislation, A. 6287-B, for a floor vote.
The Assembly will return this month—possibly as early tomorrow—to complete unfinished business. We need to ask for your help one more time to get this bill over the finish line.
What You Can Do
Even if you contacted your assemblymember after our last email, please take a moment to do so again today.
Visit the ASPCA Advocacy Center (https://secure2.convio.net/aspca/site/Advocacy?cmd=display&page=UserAction&id=2733) to fax your assemblymember to request that he or she (1) support A. 6287-B to make animal fight attendance a misdemeanor, and (2) urge Assembly leadership to post this important humane bill for a floor vote.
