Paul Fong for State Assembly, CA's 28th District
Election day is 8 days away, and advocates of animal protection need to know who is
standing up for their interests. The Humane Society Legislative Fund is the
non-partisan political arm of the humane movement, and we want you to know that
Paul Fong is a friend of animal protection.
We're encouraging animal advocates to support Paul Fong for
California’s 28th State Assembly district.
Paul Fong is a member of the Animal
Protection Caucus and has been a champion for animal protection in the
California State Assembly. Among his many efforts, Paul Fong has:
- Authored AB 376 to prohibit the possession,
sale, trade and distribution of shark fin. Shark fin soup and related products
drives the cruel practice of cutting off a shark’s fin, often while the animal
is still alive, and then the shark is thrown back into the sea.
- Voted for SB 425 to increase fines and create
parity with dogfighting in the Penal Code allowing for the forfeiture of
property obtained using illegal profits gained through cockfighting activities.
- Voted for SB 702 to create a cost-effective way
to reunite pets and owners and reduce local agency costs associated with
holding, re-homing or euthanizing animals.
- Voted for SB 917 to ban the sale of animals in
parking lots and along roadsides, and increases fines and possible jail time
for those convicted of felony animal neglect.
- Voted for AB 564 to re-establish the Municipal
Shelter Spay-Neuter Fund, allowing for voluntary contributions by taxpayers on
their annual income tax returns.
- Voted for AB 1117 to amend the Penal Code to
prohibit criminals convicted of animal cruelty from owning animals for a
specified period of time after their conviction.
- Voted for SB 1221 to ban hound hunting of bears and
- Voted for AB 1437 to require that all eggs sold in California
comply with modest animal welfare and food safety standards consistent
with Prop 2, a ballot measure overwhelmingly approved by statewide voters.
Paul Fong is a friend of animals and we encourage you to
vote for him on November 6. Please forward this email to friends and family and
share it on Facebook.
