The Government Affairs section of The Humane Society of the United States tracks, reviews, drafts, comments, lobbies and testifies on legislation that impacts animals in almost every state. We also keep a record of certain priority legislation on this website so citizens can take action.
If you are working on legislation in your state, it may be a good idea to familiarize yourself with the bills that have been signed into law or vetoed in recent years, and to have a basic understanding of trends that have developed in animal protection around the country. The following pages contain a list of bills that have passed into law, or that have been vetoed. For copies of these bills, or to find out more, please contact The HSUS Government Affairs Section at 202-452-1100 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
