2020 Legislative Priorities for WISE Animal Welfare Huddle
Ban on Cosmetics Testing on Animals (SB 729) – This bill would prevent companies from selling cosmetics that have been newly tested on animals. More info: https://www.wbal.com/article/431438/3/bill-to-be-introduced-in-annapolis-would-ban-animal-testing-of-cosmetics
Ban on Wildlife Killing Contests (HB 863) – This bill would prohibit the random killing of mammals in wildlife killing contests, where the sole purpose of the event is to kill the largest number of animals possible, often for cash or guns. The bodies of these animals are usually left or discarded, leaving their young to starve. More information: http://www.projectcoyote.org/endkillingcontests/
