On June 24, 2013, the PA Senate concurred with the PA House amendments made to SB 526, which concerns sanitation standards for livestock being transported for exhibition. The bill requires that owners of animals at exhibitions must present a valid Pennsylvania health certificate for their animals or an interstate veterinary certificate of inspection proving a veterinary consultation relationship to the operator of the exhibition. A description of previous action on this bill can be found here.The next step will be for the Governor to sign the bill into law.
For more information, please see the PA General Assembly’s website.
