Dog breeders and welfare activists clashed over potential revisions to Proposition B for the second day at the state Capitol in Jefferson City on Wednesday. Opponents testified before the Missouri Senate Agriculture Committee on bills that would modify or repeal Prop B. Sponsors of the bills claim that it unfairly targets licensed breeders, and not the unlicensed breeders who dodge regulation.

Senator Mike Parsons, a cattle farmer, has proposed a bill changing the criminal provisions of Proposition B and giving breeders time to correct violations before being charged.

The Humane Society of Missouri continues to voice strong opposition to any changes to Prop B. Humane Society of Missouori president Kathy Warnick issued the following statement: “We feel the components of Proposition B are right on track with making the existence for an animal in a breeding facility humane and decent, and it is not at present.”
