veto SB 762. This bill would eliminate the right of cities
to prohibit certain non-therapeutic procedures on animals,
even when performed by veterinarians, when their inhabitants
find them to unnecessary and inhumane. The courts have stated
that such procedures are incidental to the practice of veterinary
medicine and that banning them is not regulation of veterinary
practice. I believe decisions regarding the humane treatment
of animals should remain the prerogative of local governments
and their citizens. Thank you.
