Default CA mandatory spay/neuter bill pulled from Committee

CA AB 1634 was pulled today from the California Senate Local Government Committee by the bill sponsor Assemblymember Lloyd Levine. The bill would have required owners to spay or neuter all dogs and cats six months of age, with few practical exceptions. Because of this development, AB 1634 will not be considered for the remainder of this legislative session. The earliest the bill could be up for consideration will be next January.

You're right, BrianH. People1, PETA 0...for now, at least.

The bill is not dead... It's been "passed over" until January. This has been the "strategy" all along to keep it from being "killed". Every time Assemblyman Member LeVine knows he hasn't got the votes to pass it, he allows it to be "passed over" until such time as he feels he has *done whatever* to secure the votes he needs.... He's in this fight for the long haul, along with all of the AR "big guns" -- PETA, HSUS, etc.

They're just counting on the "little guy" opposition to tire out while they do their politicking...... And they KNOW they far outweigh us in the wallet. This is typically how all of the more local ordinances get passed "when nobody's looking.”

TORIA, do you know what the "The Continuing Lassie Effort" is?

Disagree - just because PETA backs it doesn't make it a bad bill.....if you want an intact dog and you can't find a loophole in that bill, you need to read it again. Something has to be done about overpopulation - you can't legislate responsibility, but you CAN legislate accountability....oh wait, Toria - you and I are debating this on another thread, aren't we? LOL!

Hope falls right out..If they want spay/neuter charge more on license fees for unspayed/neuter animals and try to enforce that..Hunting organizations will keep helping to fight against this bill also.

Read the bill....there's NOTHING in there to keep you from having a pet. Nothing.

I think a lot of folks got twisted when PETA came out in support of it because they are wacky crackers, but no - I do not think that will ever happen. The AKC came out against the bill, but I suspect their motive is money.

Not trying to be a PITA, but read the bold. First step. PETA wants to dictate to people what they can and cant eat, can and cant have as a pet. They will try and accomplish this with steps, not all at once.

Not trying to be a PITA but I think too much emphasis is on the PETA endorsement...I think the AKC won this round and will continue to do so - no one despises AKC.....everyone other than PETA members wonder about PETA. It's been defeated right out of the chute. Granted, it will raise it's head again....but I don't believe we will see elimination of household pets, not in your lifetime or mine.

I dont think so either, but it will always be on PETA's agenda though. I prefer the AKC's opinion cause they dont wanna take my steak away from me either :d
