HSLF Endorses Dean Florez for California Lt Governor

No surprise here that the Humane Society Legislative Fund has already announced their endorsement for Senator Dean Florez (D-16) in his bid for Lt. Governor. Sen. Florez was a driving force this year on behalf of HSUS/HSLF for legislation against agriculture producers and dog owners. Florez was the author of SB 250 (now inactive) which would criminalize ownership of intact dogs and cats under certain conditions and mandate new local programs for spay/neuter of any impounded dog or cat before release.
