Update: Sadly, the Limit Tethering Bill did not pass this year.
The Limit Tethering Bill, HB 1755 was stopped in the House of Representatives before it was able to get to a vote on the House Floor. This means the bill will not be passed this year. Several Democratic Representatives, as well as, Republican Representatives opposed the bill, at a crucial point making it impossible for it to move forward. However, it often takes several attempts to get bills passed and we are dedicated to continuing the fight to help tethered dogs. We will be bringing this bill back next year and will need to build support throughout 2012. You are all incredibly important in making a state wide tethering bill a reality. Thank you for your continuing support and we will keep you updated throughout the year on our progress.
