The Louisiana legislature is about to submit a bill that would tax the sale of pet food. Funds from this tax will be used to support state animal shelters. If approved, the tax will add one cent per pound of food!
Do you know of a website to get a copy of that bill? I would positively get something like that in front of my state representative. Sometimes, I thing we all feel powerless to help our best friends, but this is a great idea. Even if you can not find a website could you email me a newspaper site that mentions the bill? I felt so depressed and helpless about the Air Canada transportation thread that I could not even post a comment! But this is something I can do!
Great idea. now if they can use some of those funds towards regulating the ingredients in pet food that would be even better. Hopefully more states and provences here in Canada will follow in Louisiana's footsteps.
