Another meeting on the House anti-Proposition B bill HB 131 will be held Tuesday, February 15th at 12pm in House Hearing Room 6. The meeting is an executive session, where those rascally representatives see how they can contrive to gut Proposition B but only make it seem as if they’re making minor modifications.
HB 131 not only removes all the provisions of Proposition B, it also redefines it so that the remaining scraps of text only apply to breeders with over 100 dogs. I just hope the representatives’ agribusiness masters give them their treats, pat them on the head for a job well done.
That’s a good Representative! Good rep! Want me to scratch your belly now?
A glimmer of light is seen, though, and the color of the light is red. Cardinal red, to be exact.
Cardinal’s manager Tony La Russa has come out, swinging yet again, in support of Proposition B.
Update My pardon, but I originally thought the meeting next Tuesday was a public hearing, but the meeting is an Executive session. Evidently the representatives found it too difficult to maintain a facade of openness.
So much easier to steal the vote from the people when we’re not watching.
