MURRAY, UT (March 6, 2017) -- Animal Shelter Amendments bill fails despite free training and lower cost
For the third year in a row, a proposed bill to end the use of gas chambers for shelter animal euthanasia failed to pass the Utah Legislature. On March 3, 2017, the motion to recommend S.B. 56 - Animal Shelter Amendments sponsored by Sen. Peter Knudson and Rep. Lee B. Perry failed in the House Government Operations Committee with a vote of four yeas and four nays. The bill passed the Senate Floor with a 19-7 vote last month.
