Sorry Moose. Free enterprize and capitalizm = competition. The animal lovers can pool their donated resources to establish state of the art facilities to properly treat and raise animals and put the puppy mills out of business. ALL WITHOUT TAX DOLLARS! The gov't can't adequately fund and adminsiter facilities to shelter and care for abused women, children, and veterans! Don't force your wishes on those of us who don't want our legislators to create another tax dependant mission on behalf of pets! At best, keep your political efforts at the local level. Let your local politicians levy local taxes to sooth your concience.
Well, first, the only ones getting taxed here are the breeders, and they are only being forced to pay the taxes that they should ALREADY be paying. No one is suggesting that you take even $1 from the programs to feed the elderly or deal with child abuse. SB 1712 is completely revenue neutral.

As to the "Free enterprize and capitalizm = competition" argument, so you are saying that no regulations of any enterprise at all can be justified? Cause if I offer sub-prime mortgages to people who can't afford to buy the house they want and will probably eventually default, I can make a bunch of money and pull out just at the point where the whole thing collapses. How did that work out for the US (and the rest of the world)? Did that provide healthcare for one orphan? Did that give one homeless disabled veteran food or shelter for one night?

If you and your fellow puppy millers don't want to live in a state that requires breeders to provide reasonable care, you can always move to Missouri.
