The controversy over Assembly Bill 1634 has been put on hold, for now. The statewide mandatory spay and neuter bill has been shelved after receiving a not so welcome reception from the Senate Committee.
Assemblyman Lloyd Levine decided to not pursue the vote on his bill after it was clear that the Senate would not accept his last ditch effort to amend the bill. He tried to amend the bill last minute by saying that he would be willing to remove the statewide mandate from the amendment. Members of the Senate Committee agreed that his amendments on the fly were not acceptable.
Levine said that he would revive the bill next year.
“I think we can get to a solution,” Levine said. “But the first thing opponents must do is to acknowledge that there’s a problem and work with me to solve it.”
