This is a list of animal bills that have received votes in either the House and/or Senate this session and how your legislators have voted. It is updated after every animal bill receives a vote. A final score will be made at the end of the legislative session. We have included the Prime Sponsor (PS) and the Co-Sponsors (CS), so you can tell if your legislator made a firm commitment to protect animals and support the legislation. We think you’ll find it easy to tell who are PA’s leading humane legislators.
It is important is that you share this scorecard with others you know. There are hundreds of Pennsylvanians working tirelessly in the rescue communities and animal advocacy communities who should see how their legislators voted. Forward this along to your friends and family. Encourage them to support Humane PA as we work to change the political landscape to better protect animals in Pennsylvania.
Please also share this link with your legislator to let them know you are watching and either appreciate their score or want them to do better. Please also share on your Facebook page, Twitter, or other social media channels.
The Humane PA Scorecard will be updated as votes happen and a final score will be given at the end of each legislative session, so make sure your legislators take note that they will be scored on their overall votes. It is time to take the animal vote to a new level and hold our legislators accountable.
It is important for every voter in PA to know how their legislator has voted on animal protection bills in order to make informed decisions during elections. The Humane PA Scorecard will be used when considering endorsements for legislators who are running for re-election.
