'Another layer'

While well-intentioned, AB 1634 is full of unintended consequences for responsible dog owners. Responsible dog owners will be penalized -- in fact, victimized -- if this bill becomes law, while irresponsible dog owners will flout the law as usual.

If you don't want to ruin your dog with mandatory premature neutering or incur annual fees of hundreds of dollars, read up on AB 1634 and call your Assembly member. Keep in mind that irresponsible dog owners won't abide by the law anyway, so the rest of us will have to pay for another layer of government.
