The hearing on HB 341 has been postponed until Friday, February 25th
, so there is still time to register your support for a rabies medical exemption for New Mexico's dogs and cats who have been diagnosed by a veterinarian as being too ill to be vaccinated.
The New Mexico Veterinary Medical Association Board http://www.nmvma.org/ABOUT_board.html
is lobbying against this medical exemption bill despite the fact that a minority of their members oppose medical exemptions, so it is crucial that the Agriculture Committee http://www.nmlegis.gov/lcs/committee...itteeCode=HAGC
has overwhelming public support for HB 341 in order to pass it (committee member contact information can be found at link or in my previous post).
The following vets comprise the NMVMA Board
: Linda Locklar, T. “Murt” Byrne, Manuel Garcia, Kathy Dobesh, Charles Lange, Craig Walker, Emily Walker, Rick Miller, Bonnie Snyder, Heidi Hamlen, Terry Jantzen, Don Dykhouse. If your vet is a board member, call & ask them to support the rabies medical exemption bill.
