Longview – (1/10/10) - Creating the companion animal spay/neuter assistance program . If you'd be willing to pay a little extra for your pet food to lower the birth rates of unwanted cats and dogs, then this bill's for you. State Senate Bill 5329/ House Bill 1406 would help pay for spay/neuter surgeries for feral cats and pets with low-income owners. The bills, which advocates say would reduce the euthanasia rate of homeless animals, would be funded by adding a 3-cent-per-pound fee to the price of cat and dog food. The bills were first introduced in the Legislature a year ago, but they died in the House and Senate agriculture committees after a public hearing. Monday, when the 2010 legislative session began, the bills were reintroduced to the agriculture committees, which are chaired by District 19 representatives Sen. Brian Hatfield (D-Raymond) and Rep. Brian Blake (D-Aberdeen). Neither Hatfield nor Blake is interested in pushing the bill out of committee, they said Monday. "This whole thing is about pressuring us to allow a vote to move this bill through committee, and right now I'm not willing to do that," Blake said. "It's a tax hike on pet owners. ... Right now I'd rather not tax people's pet food."
