Licensing of dogs and cats. Delays the effective date for certain localities of 2006 legislation that requires veterinarians to forward to the local treasurer vaccination information for dogs so that the local treasurer may, upon receipt of the vaccination information, bill the owners of unlicensed dogs for a pet license. The current effective date is July 1, 2007. Localities that issue licenses on the basis of a calendar year would be able to implement the provisions beginning in 2008. Read the Bill »
