Again, Thank you Animal Protection League New Mexico and the NM Restaurant Association for being there to support SB11.
There was a gentleman that did not support the bill because he felt pet dogs would interfere with his assistance dog and a women from The Govenor's Commission on Disability stood up as well. I am sorry to report that not one person from the dog community was there to support the bill.
Next stop for this bill is a floor vote in the Senate. It could be before…Continue
