Update: Missouri State House and Senate committees send bills forward to repeal Prop B

A Missouri State House committee advanced a bill forward Wednesday to repeal key provisions of Proposition B, the measure voters passed in November to regulate puppy mills.

A Senate panel has also moved a bill forward with modifications to the law, according to ConnectMidMissouri.com.

Seems some elected officials in Missouri don’t care for the state’s constitution and have decided that the right of citizens to cast legal votes should take a back seat to special interests. And as we too often see with politicians with puppet strings attached their backs, profit and power is king.

      The citizens of Missouri need to make their voices heard on this injustice. And people who have not voted in the past and who care about animal welfare and the rights of voters to vote on ballot measures need vote and become more vocal.
      Those of us outside of Missouri need to keep speaking out as well. I truly believe animal lovers make up one of the biggest voting blocks in the country.
      Elected officials need to know we are out in greater numbers than the special-interest groups that line their pockets.

    I sincerely wish that each of the legislators that are pulling this despicable deed would have to tour at least two or three of the mills and see first hand the deplorable conditions that they are voting to perpetuate! I pray that the money that these jackals are pocketing will burn their hands. These are God’s creatures that we are given dominion over to protect and nurture. Responsible breeding is fine, but the puppy mills profits are “blood money”! Curse anyone supporting this act of arrogance and greed!!!!

    Chester,
    Your statement – “These are God’s creatures that we are given dominion over to protect and nurture” – is great.
    The people such as those who run puppy mills and support them probably don’t understand at all what the phrase dominion means – or have a warped view of the definition.
    You have defined it perfectly – “to protect and nurture.” Thank you.
