The Never Ending Competence of the Florida Democratic Party

Sure Ron DeSantis is turning Florida into a fascist paradise. But there are still a lot of Democrats in the state legislature. So what are they prioritizing in their fight against DeSantis? Oh….cute dogs with their heads out the window of a moving car.

A bill moving through the Florida legislature would forbid dogs from sticking their head out of car windows, in addition to a host of other measures.

The proposed measure is part of Senate Bill 932, a sweeping animal welfare bill sponsored by senate minority leader Lauren Book.

Section 1 of the bill deals with transporting dogs in cars. The section would prohibit Floridians from allowing “a dog to extend its head or any other body part outside a motor vehicle window while the person is operating the motor vehicle on a public roadway.”

The bill says violators would be subject to a noncriminal traffic infraction, considered a moving violation.

The section also includes other regulations on how dogs can be transported in cars. The bill would ban Floridians from holding dogs in their lap while driving, or transporting their dogs via the car’s running board, fender, hood, roof, or trunk. Instead, it stipulates dogs in motor vehicles on public roadways must be either secured in appropriately-sized crates, restrained with a harness or pet seat belt, or “under the physical control of a person other than the operator of the motor vehicle.”

In addition, the bill proposes new restrictions on declawing cats, cosmetic animal testing, animal cruelty, and the sale of rabbits.

Section 9 of the bill would create an “animal abuse registry,” much like the registries that currently exist for sex offenders. Starting January 1, 2024, information on people convicted of animal abuse would be posted to a publicly accessible state website. The registry would include each offender’s legal name and aliases, address, date of birth, and photograph. Registered abusers would also not be permitted to “own, possess, or reside in the same residence with or on the same property as an animal unless authorized to do so in a court order.”

OK…..no, dog owners probably shouldn’t let their dogs do this….but my God Florida Democrats! This is your priority in 2023!!!!!! This is the person who is minority leader? It’s no wonder Republicans win all the time down there.
