BILL NUMBER:A1123

TITLE  OF  BILL:   An act to amend the agriculture and markets law, in
relation to limiting the animal dealers exempt under the provisions of
article 7 of such law relating to the  licensing,  identification  and
control of dogs

PURPOSE  OR GENERAL IDEA OF THE BILL: This bill will ensure that Class
A  dog  breeders,  except  those  selling  dogs  exclusively  to  USDA
registered  research  facilities,  are  subject  to the same licensing
provision as other classifications of breeders within the state.

SUMMARY OF  SPECIFIC  PROVISIONS:    Subdivision  4  of  section  107,
contained  with  article  7  of  the NYS Agriculture and Markets laws,
shall be amended by section 1 of part (T) of chapter 59 of the laws of
2010.

JUSTIFICATION:  While USDA Class A license holders for commercial  dog
breeding  frequently  have  as many as 600 adult breeding dogs and are
responsible for a significant percentage of our  state's  overburdened
animal  shelter  system,  these  professional breeders are exempt from
making contributions to state Animal Population Control Fund programs.
Removing this inappropriate exception will  yield  additional  revenue
that  can  be  applied to spay and neuter programs capable of reducing
shelter populations and  eliminating  the  unnecessary  euthanasia  of
animals.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:  A.7628 of 2011-2012

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None to the State.

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act will take effect on the one hundred twentieth
day after it shall have become a law.
