To all interested parties (anyone who lives/trains in Ma.), I am still on the road to getting this done. To those of you who have contacted the state senator,thanks,he listened. I am working with the sportsmans council on drafting some bills,that should be filed by july 2008. BUT!!!!!! and this is a big BUT!!!!!!!!. In the past all dog training bills fell on their face because no one came out to testify at the statehouse on this matter when the time came. The last time a bill was brought up they 1 person show up,that isn't going to change anything. I'd like to see 10-12 at least show up when the time comes. If any changes are to come about we need you to come out to testify in a house or senate committee. As the legislative guru for the council put it, we need to take baby steps,or death by a thousand cuts. All of the changes may not happen,but some of them should get through. Heck I'd be happy with getting one passed.
here is the link to a site with the proposed changes
Anyone that wants to can pm me or email me with any help/comments/support
Thanks for listening, Jim
