Recent Mid-Stream Seat Changes
On November 5, Megan Dahle won the Assembly District 1 special election to replace her spouse, Brian Dahle, who moved to the Senate last June.

Effective November 1, Jeff Stone left his Senate District 28 office for an appointment from Donald Trump as U.S. Department of Labor’s western director.  Governor Newsom announced a special election for this seat at the upcoming March 3 Primary Election.  Among the candidates registered so far, Joy Silver is the most promising candidate for animal welfare.

The federal wild horse issue and decisions on the Hill for Interior spending are coming to a head, but it's not too late to call or write to Senators Feinstein and Harris to have your name on record for the horses.  We are asking that you oppose the $35M plan to round up 150,000 wild horses and burros over the next several years.

New Appointments & Legislation Coming for Horse Racing

We can expect to see legislation to address horse racing in 2020, after much news on this issue, including strong statements from Governor Newsom and Senator Diane Feinstein.  Governor Newsom appointed three new CHRB board members this year, and three others have either resigned or will be doing so in the near future.

It is the opinion of this author that, like greyhound racing, horse racing should not even be allowed.  PawPAC has spoken and/or written directly to the CHRB and the Governor expressing this view.
