Doggie Racism now OK

In Cali, Bay City News:

More than three months have passed since Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger signed a bill allowing local governments to regulate the neutering, spaying and breeding of specific dog breeds, but it was only Thursday that the law took effect.

Senate Bill 861, authored by state Sen. Jackie Speier, D-San Mateo/San Francisco, would have become effective on Jan. 1, but a referendum drive to overturn the law left it in limbo.

However, the referendum petition failed to garner the 373,000 signatures needed to overturn SB 861, and the bill went into effect today, Speier’s staff director Richard Steffen said.

The “bill allows cities and counties to pass specified breed-specific legislation for mandatory spaying and neutering, and breeding restrictions,” according to California state Senate floor analysis.

It’s now OK to pass ineffective laws to deal with irresponsible pet owners. I guess Cali is no longer not a wholly evil place.

    It’s certainly a little closer to wholly evil than it was prior to the New Year. However, we do still have a ban on most forms of BSL, or any most responsible non-breeders would care about. The original version of the bill would have legalized Denver.

    […] Turns out, Cali does allow for spaying/neutering based on breed. I forgot about that. Cali still prohibits bans based on breeds, […]

Remember, I do this to entertain me, not you.
