Legislation is pending in the Pennsylvania House (H.B. 2130) to ban this atrocity with 50 co-sponsors. Unfortunately, House Majority Leader William DeWeese is refusing to bring the Bill up for a vote. The Pennsylvania legislative session is almost over and action is needed now to pass this legislation.
 


What You Can Do
 
Please call, fax or email Representative William DeWeese (even if you don't live in Pennsylvania) and ask that he allow H.B. 2130 to be voted on this Wednesday.
 
Representative William DeWeese
Capitol Office: (717) 783-3797
fax: (724) 627-6043 
email
 
The House meets this Wednesday and will decide if H.B. 2130 gets passed. If so, the Bill moves forward into the Senate for approval and then to the Governor where it becomes law.
 
Status
 
The Senate is not scheduled to meet this year so even if it makes it through the House on Wednesday, it will not be heard by the Senate.  Please politely ask Senator Dominick Pileggi to support and schedule H.B. 2130 for a vote this session should the Bill pass from the House Committee.
 
Senator Dominick Pileggi
phone: (717) 787-4712
fax: (610) 358-5184

If the above action fails, the Bill will be reintroduced in January and the entire process must start all over again.

Thank you for taking action to help pigeons.
