State Rep. Paul Muxlow is holding a news conference this Friday, May 17, to discuss the impactHouse Bill 4534, “Logan’s Law,” can have on reducing animal abuse in Michigan. The news conference will be at the Blue Water Area Humane Society, 6266 Lapeer Road, Clyde, at10:30 a.m. “We have received overwhelming support for this legislation and I am heartened to see how it has already had an effect on bringing awareness to this issue,” Muxlow said. “Our hope is that we can get this bill quickly through committee and up for a full vote of the House. ”My commitment is to change the way we handle instances of animal abuse in this state and to bring heightened awareness to it in an effort to prevent it from happening.” Logan’s Law is a proposed legislation package that would create an offender’s database for anyone convicted of animal cruelty laws. The news conference is being held at the location where Logan, the bill’s namesake was sheltered after his abuse. Logan’s owners, Matt and Nancy Falk, will also be on hand to talk about the effects of animal abuse. Co-sponsor of the legislation, Rep. Harvey Santana, D-Detroit, will speak at the news conference as well.
