On Monday April 26th, the House Ways and Means Committee will be holding a work session on an amendment to SB 450 that, if passed will raise the licensing fee from $200 to $350 for pet stores, humane societies, rescue organizations, and commercial kennels.

The license fee was last raised in 2004.  The additional money raised will go to the Agriculture Department to help offset the costs of inspections of licensed facilities.

If you want to attend, the work session will be held in Room 202 in the Legislative Office Building at 3 p.m.
