Subject: Texas BSL!

HB1096 & SB 1111 passed the FULL House with NO OPPOSITION. That
means it has heavy support and will be very hard to stop now.
Currently, Texas state law prohibits BSL, but if these bills are
passed, BSL can/will become a reality here in the Lone Star State.
This legislation will be heard in the Senate Criminal Justice
Committee. Below are the Senators that serve on the CJ Committee, no
matter where you live, please call, fax or email the Senate opposing
these bills. If you are a resident in Texas, please get in touch
with your elected officials and oppose HB 1096 & SB 1111.

Laws that penalize owners, regardless of the breed, are what is
needed, NOT BSL.

PLEASE BE COURTEOUS! WE DO NOT NEED PEOPLE TO BE RUDE! The idea is
to persuade, not to confront. Do NOT get angry on the phone or in
emails!

Please feel free to cross post and foreward to every dog owner you
know. Today it is APBT's, tomorrow it could be hound dogs. It is in
every dog owning American's best interest to oppose ANY form of BSL!

Thank you,
