We STRONGLY encourage each club to make sure your Local Legislative Liaison is staying informed of the laws that are being proposed in your area. It’s extremely important for your club and its members to be aware of what is happening locally so you can keep the ADBA Legislative Department up-to-date. It’s imperative that we work together to fight BSL, Anti-Tethering and Anti-Breeder laws; we need to stay proactive!
Send all upcoming/pending Legislation to firstname.lastname@example.org
