For those of you who read the Good News for Greyhounds story, I’m sure you would want to know that the Florida House of Representatives voted 86-31 to give greyhounds a second chance. Now the Senate version of GREY2K USA’s Greyhound Decoupling bill (SB 1594) is still pending in the Senate Budget Committee. SB 1594 would allow dog tracks in the state to terminate live dog racing and continue operating their poker rooms and/or slot machines
My friends at GREY2K USA and I would like you to e-mail each of the Senators below, and ask them to support Senate Bill 1594. Tell them that this is a good bill that will reduce greyhound injuries and reduce the number of greyhounds that endure lives of confinement.
And feel free to share this post with everyone you know. Thanks on behalf of the greyhounds.
Here’s the list of Florida Senators
I know you are caring individuals. If time is an issue, you can copy this list and send one e-mail to all the senators listed below. Thank you!
JD Alexander, Chair
Joe Negron, Vice Chair
Ellyn Setnor Bogdanoff
