Pet Alerts & Issue Updates

PetAlerts are actionable items that require your immediate attention. With PetAlerts, we will ask you to take specific action; call or email a legislator, attend a hearing, or submit comments.

Issue Updates are brief summaries that replace the legalese found commonly in legislative summaries. These will keep you informed of legislative and regulatory issues important to you.
