Opposition to Victoria’s Law
Want to know who is fighting the passage of Victoria’s Law? See for yourself in the attached 2020 Judiciary Committee hearing and via the additional testimony. (Please note: the AKC is listed under Letters of Support but they strongly oppose Victoria’s Law).
Some of the strongest opposition comes from the PVMA (Pennsylvania Veterinary Medical Association). Their Legislative and Regulatory Affairs Committee speaks for the entire membership of nearly 4,000 members yet did not survey their full membership before coming out against Victoria’s Law.
