CS is bad news for Kentucky

This is bad news for Kentucky, and good news for dogfighters. The committee substitute language that the Senate passed along to the House actually weakens Kentucky’s dog-fighting law. The committee sub was rushed, and by the time Kentucky prosecutors were consulted, the bill was already on its way to the House. In the wake of unanimous Senate approval, prosecutors now tell us the new language not only will make it next to impossible to convict anyone of breeding/owning/transporting/training dogs for fighting, it will also make it even harder to convict anyone who operates dog-fighting events. One prosecutor even describes the committee sub as “an abomination.” And if the committee sub for SB14 goes through the House unchanged and the Governor signs it into law, Frankfort will effectively reverse over 30 years of legislative efforts to combat dog-fighting in Kentucky.
