Gas chamber ban bill: SB 354, also known as “Grant’s Bill” to end the use of gas chambers in Michigan shelters, passed the Senate Agriculture Committee on June 18 by a vote of 5 to 0 (hooray!) and now awaits a Senate floor vote before moving to the House. Thank you to the many representatives from the veterinary, animal control, sheltering, and rescue communities who submitted testimony and letters of support for the bill in the hearing.
The legislature is now on its summer break, so any further bill action will need to wait until early September. In the meantime, we encourage you to learn more about how you can help promote Grant’s Bill by visiting http://michigandersforshelterpets.org/grants-bill/.
