Breaking News: Compromise dog-breeding bill signed by Missouri governor

No Gravatar

Missouri Governor Jay Nixon signed two bills Wednesday, one to gut Proposition B and then another compromise bill that falls in between the two measures.

I’m still not convinced this was the right thing to do, as it seems troubling to me that the terrible first bill was even signed at all. Seems pretty sneaky somehow to me.

I’ve not seen a clear explanation for why the first bill needed to be signed. It is not explained in the latest article in the Kansas City Star. I’ll have more as I look deeper into this subject.

    I, too, was quite confused by what I was reading on what was signed and was curious as to your take on them.

    I see glaring ommissions that concern me and verbiage (such as “prompt treatment of serious injuries and illnesses” vs. “prompt treatment of all illnesses and injuries” among others) that appear open to interpretation.

    I am uncomfortable and a bit leery of what I see as a political dance.

    Nancy,

    As a journalist, one of the first questions I would have asked is why the first bill needed to be signed at all.
    I can’t understand why an explanation or at least a mention that the question was asked has not been included in anything I’ve read thus far.
    Too often I see huge gaps like this in news stories across the board, where an important question is totally ignored. I don’t get it. What’s going on with the media these days?
