The AKC gave us a list of their Texas Breed Clubs so we could request your help. A few of us worked on a submittal opposing the implementation of the proposed Rules and Regulations TDLR wrote for 1451, The Dog and Cat Breeder Bill.. The period for comments ended 2/20/2012. March 1st there is a public hearing on the proposed Rules and Regulations. I believe the most important thing every dog lover and breeder can do is to go to the meeting this Thursday in Austin.
I know this is short notice but its imperative that there is breeder attendance and comment against these rules. Here's a link with the location, time and agenda of the Public Hearing:
Thursday, March 1, 2012 – 9:30 a.m.
North Campus Building, 1st Floor Public Meeting Room, Room 125E. 1106 Clayton Lane, Austin, Texas
Public Comment is one of the first items on the agenda. Every dog lover and breeder should speak and oppose the rules. Let us know if you will be there. We can supply you with a list of questions and comments for your use.
If you would like a copy of our submission let us know and it will be forwarded to you. Our submission has two sections, the first addresses the economic impact and the second speaks to issues with specific rules.
We hope you and members of your club will get to Austin on Thursday. This is important to all breeders! Breeders need to speak up.
