Yahoo Group to fight SB861
is with TREMENDOUS sadness I must report that
SB861 has passed the committee. We had two
no votes and 4 Yes votes (including a member who
has a pit mix that does not understand the
ramifications of this bill).
6/30 update: The bill will go to the
Assembly Appropriations Committee, then to the
Assembly floor, then to the Senate floor and
finally the Gov. . We have spots to STOP
this and we MUST. PLEASE EVERYONE continue
to fight this bill!!

opinion on SB861 passing:
While I am a big supporter of speutering for
animals, I have a HUGE problem with anything
What I would personally prefer is for them to
kick SB861 to the sewer where it belongs and
force San Francisco to enact NON breed specific
laws targeting ALL breeds. They were shown LA's
Ordinance for mandatory speuter and how people
go door to door. Donna gave this to them early
one. According to LA this program is making a
It is my personal opinion that this is ALL about
Gavin Newsbom saving face because he was to
quick in opening his mouth about the case. He
spoke out about BSL before the investigation was
completed or even barely started only to find
Nicholas would be alive if his mother was not so
irresponsible (arrested on Felony Child
endangerment). If he hadn't made those
statements to the press, I really thing San Fran
would have adopted the LA ord.
What is the harm of trying that for awhile then
trying for an amendment to the State law???
The Ramifications of SB861 passing into law:
Far more than most of us realize.
California sets the pace for other States
legislative sessions. California is more
liberal in their law passing than other States.
If California passes law including the right for
local municipalities to pass BSL, other states
will follow and they will not be so liberal in
their laws!! If this bill is allowed to
pass into law, we are in big trouble for
this upcoming legislative session.
are already gearing up for State level battles
in Georgia, Oklahoma and North Carolina. I
wouldn't be surprised to see Texas or New Mexico
back in the cross hairs either this session.
People I truly can not stress enough we need you
ALL to step up to the plate and start slamming
California with emails!! Whether you
choose to believe it or not, this will effect
you at some point.
Our Next Steps:
Below is a note from Jan on what to expect next.
According to the Assembly site the next Floor
session is Friday July 1st. Looking at Jan's
note I would think it most important that we
first target the Senate Rules Committee Members
HEAVILY!! Then move on to the rest of the Senate
so they fully understand this bill is NO longer
what they voted for months ago!!! Last send to
all the Assembly members in hopes of getting a
no on the Floor vote...

For the Rules Committiee emails, possibly an
avenue to see if they will pull the bill is the
way Senator Speier's cheated this bill. She
chose a bill that had already been passed by the
Senate and had moved onto the Assembly. Trying
to sidestep the process and allow the opposition
their right to due process. She took away our
right to be heard in front of a Senate
Committee! Just a thought..
From Jan Cooper:
It will now head to the Assembly floor.
The next step if it gets passed by simply
majority at the floor of the Assembly will be
back to the Senate floor for a simple
concurrence vote....many will not even look at
the bill ...thereby assuming they already passed
it once and will push it on through again, not
realizing it is NOT WHAT THEY THOUGHT
originally.... The ONLY WAY to stop it is to get
the RULES committee to pull it..OR get Senators
to agree to send it to committee and I can
assure that Speier will be there convincing her
colleagues how good this bill is...she did a
good job on that a few minutes ago ..... IT IS
NOW OR NEVER FOR CA and if CA goes so goes the
rest of the states in US....
