Support Connecticut circus ban plans!

Posted: 17 January 2019. Updated: 1 February 2019

Four new Connecticut state bills to end traveling wild animal acts - HB5024, HB5248, HB6001, and HB6017 - have been introduced.

Cheers to the bill sponsors – Representatives Camillo (HB6001, HB6017), Elliott (HB5248), Kupchick (HB6001, HB6017), Michel (HB5248, HB6001, HB6017), Stallworth (HB5024), and Senator Duff (HB6001, HB6017).

Now before the Joint Environment Committee, these bills already enjoy the support of at least 6 cosponsors - Representatives Camillo, Kupchick, Lavielle, Lopes, Steinberg, Tercyak, as well as that of the Legislators for Animal Advocacy Caucus group.

Connecticut is clearly moving with the times and reflecting society’s changing views. However, the legislature needs to hear from constituents to finally stop circus suffering throughout the state. Will you speak for the animals?
