I arrived late at the Senate Agriculture Committee this afternoon, but
learned from others who were there that the four Sunday Hunting bills
were somehow combined, and Reported with a few nays. This should be well reported in tomorrow morning’s Times Dispatch, so we can get the details.
I did hear SB305, the bill pertaining to the Dangerous Dogs Registry,
which was reported with very little discussion.
It is apparently an Administration bill aimed at simplifying the process
the owner of a dog deemed dangerous must go through. It neither
increases nor decreases the fees that must be paid, nor does it appear
to either weaken or strengthen the Registry process. This being the
case, I am not going to worry about this bill and expect that it will
sail right through.
