Rick Roth, our Director, will be at the Mass State House to vocalize dissent for a proposed legislative bill, S.490, that would ban educational outreach programs that included live animals. This Bill would include all our Presentations and Exhibits that we have relied upon to educate our community for many decades. The Joint Committee on Environment, Natural Resources and Agriculture hearing about this petition is today.
SECTION 1. Chapter 22 of Title II, Part I of the General Laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts is amended to add a new section 23 to read as follows:
§ 23 Wild and Exotic Animal Performances Prohibited.
The entire Bill is viewable on the Mass.gov website.
