In order to keep NABR members informed and up-to-date on legislative matters affecting animal research, NABR has created a document tracking the mandatory research dog adoption bills that have been introduced in state legislatures thus far in 2017. The document provides detail for each proposed adoption bill, including the sponsor and a summary of the impact of each bill. In addition, it provides a timeline tracking the status of the bills as they progress through each state legislature, noting key information and highlighting important future dates.
NABR recognizes the importance of keeping a finger on the pulse when it comes to important legislation that will directly affect the work of its member organizations and biomedical research. We anticipate this document will become a key tool for researching and assessing state legislative developments that directly impact biomedical research efforts. Click here to find the full tracking chart in the Legislative portion of NABR’s Members Only section (log-in required). It will be updated as bills progress, so make sure to check often to stay up to date on the status of these bills.
