Adoptable Georgia Dogs for March 14, 2016

House Bill 561, which would name “the Adoptable Dog” as the official state dog of Georgia is stuck in the Senate Government Oversight Committee. In order to get unstuck, please consider emailing State Senator Bill Heath (R-Bremen) or call his office at (404) 656-3943 and politely ask that he schedule a hearing for Senate Bill 561.

Let me say that again: if you contact Sen. Heath, please ask politely – most legislators respond better to being asked politely.

Here are the points I would make:

1. Encouraging dog adoptions will reduce the cost on county and municipal governments that currently spend hundreds of thousands of dollars each year on caring for and then euthanizing unwanted dogs and cats.

2. No new state agency is created, no rules or regulations are added, and no fines, fees, or taxes are levied.

3. This is conservative legislation that costs the taxpayers no money and helps local and municipal governments reduce their tax burden and do a better job.

4. Sincerely thank whomever you email or speak to for taking the time to hear your concerns and for working to make Georgia better.
