Humane Lobby Day is coming up soon...17 January in Tallahassee. This is the annual event organized by the ASPCA and the Humane Society of the U.S., co-sponsored by Grey2K USA, and it's your chance to learn about lobbying, then meet with your Representatives and their aides to promote the most important Bill to affect FL racing greyhounds IN YEARS. The Greyhound Decoupling Bill, if passed, will give track owners the option to offer OR NOT live dog racing while still keeping the other more popular, more lucrative forms of gambling. Amazingly Animal Welfare activists are on the same side as greyhound track owners in this -- we both want to see this passed. This same bill passed both FL Houses last session but unfortunately ran out of session time for it to be approved. We've got at least the same amount of support that we had last year and Humane Lobby Day is our Kick-Off Event. IF you would like to attend, please read full details here: http://action.humanesociety.org/site/Calendar/82779881?view=Detail&id=105221 It's a no-cost event but to go you need to be pre-registered by 12 January. I am attending and I have room for one person in my (little but comfy!) car and would be happy to have company on the drive to/from Tallahassee. I will be leaving around 5:30 AM on the 17th as it's about a 3-hour trip. I would expect to be back early evening. If you'd like to go, PLEASE REGISTER before 12 January. And if you'd like to ride with me please email to email@example.com OR call 352-402-0412. Thank you!
