Animal cruelty bills to be amended 'fairly dramatically'

Posted By on Wed, Mar 13, 2013 at 11:35 AM

Sen. Gary Stubblefield's SB13 and 14, which opponents say would weaken protection animals, will be amended "fairly dramatically," according to Sen. Jeremy Hutchinson, the original sponsor of the bills, after Stubblefield met with the attorney general's office this morning, Arkansas Democrat-Gazette's Sean Beherec reports on Twitter.

The bills, which Doug Smith recently reported on for the Times, were scheduled to run in the Senate Judiciary Committee this morning.
