Animal Defenders International rallying to support PA SB 248

ADI is planning a Week of Action in Pennsylvania on November 6-10 to generate constituent support for PA SB 248, which would ban “the for-profit display of any animal that traveled in a mobile housing facility in the 15 days preceding the display” (zoos and educational and research activities are exempted).  There has been no action taken on the bill since the Senate Judiciary Committee held a hearing this summer, but ADI is claiming that Chairman Greenleaf has committed to hear the bill again later this year.  Pennsylvania has a two-year legislative session, so bills will carry over to 2018.  Pennsylvania Week of Action (ADI alert, updated Oct. 30)

Please contact the members of the Pennsylvania Senate Judiciary Committee to let them know you OPPOSE Senate Bill 248.
