Please Thank the Members of the House Civil Justice Committee Who Opposed the Bill!
On Wednesday, March 3, the House Civil Justice Committee passed House File 1396 by a vote of 6-5. The bill will now advance to the House Public Safety Policy and Oversight Committee for consideration.
HF 1396 includes a provision that would allow a court that issues a domestic abuse protective order to prohibit the respondent from having any contact with a PET OR COMPANION ANIMAL OWNED, POSSESSED, OR KEPT by a party protected in the order. This new provision could have serious consequences for Minnesotans who exercise their right to keep and bear arms.
Please contact the members who opposed HF 1396 and thank them for opposing such detrimental legislation. Members who voted against this bill are listed below, along with their contact information.
State Representative Steve Drazkowski (R-28B)
