Another Attempt to Tax, Regulate and Put Businesses Out of Business

2010 Senate Bill 1503 (Impose licensure on commercial dog and cat breeders ) Introduced by Sen. Michael Switalski (D) on September 22, 2010, to impose licensure and regulations on commercial dog and cat breeders, with annual license fees of $100 to $150 plus a $200 application fee. Referred to the Senate Agriculture and Bioeconomy Committee on September 22, 2010.

How much you wanna bet this effort was led by the Humane Society of the United States. They are not what you think they are, as exposed by this website. But regardless how it came to the Senate, if passed, this legislation will cripple the dog and cat breeding business in Michigan. Think about it, $200 just to fill out the application form? Who would want to do that? More paperwork, more red tape, more hurdles to small business owners who just want to make a living. Michigan does not need this.
