Missouri House committee supports changes in Proposition B
Tuesday, February 15, 2011 | 4:48 p.m. CST
JEFFERSON CITY — A Missouri House of Representatives committee has advanced a bill stripping away much of a dog-breeding law approved by voters in November.
The House Agriculture Policy Committee gave the bill unanimous endorsement Tuesday, sending it to the full House.
The bill would remove limits on how many dogs a breeder can own and delete requirements that dogs have a certain amount of space, clean water and time between breeding cycles. It would also rename the law from the Puppy Mill Cruelty Prevention Act to the Dog Breeders Cruelty Prevention Act.
A Senate committee also endorsed a bill last month modifying the voter-backed law.
Proposition B passed in November with 51.6 percent of the statewide vote.
