LA County Plastic Bag Ban Clears First Hurdle
Tue, Nov 16th, 2010
-- By the CNN Wire Staff November 16, 2010 8:15 p.m. EST
(CNN) -- The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday approved a preliminary ordinance that bans plastic bags at supermarkets, pharmacies and convenience stores in the unincorporated areas of Los Angeles County. The final ordinance will be drafted and voted on next week, and if approved then, the ban will go into effect on July 1, 2011, for some stores and January 1, 2012 for all stores, said Brian Lew, spokesman for the board of supervisors. The preliminary measure passed on a 3-1 vote. However, one supervisor who supports the measure was absent, so next week's final vote could be 4-1. In addition to banning plastic bags, the ordinance would require stores that provide recyclable paper bags to charge 10 cents per bag.

LA Country Board of Supervisors pass Puppy Mill Ordinance
Thu, Mar 17th, 2011
The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors Tuesday March 15th passed an ordinance intended to reduce animal cruelty associated with puppy mills run by irresponsible breeders. The ordinance was spearheaded by Supervisor Michael Antonovich, an animal lover who presents a dog or cat for adoption at virtually every board meeting he attends.
"This ordinance will close puppy mills, which have historically abused animals by placing them in overcrowded and unsanitary conditions without adequate veterinary care, food and water," Antonovich said.
Under the new rules, breeders will be required to:
-- wait until dogs are at least 12 months old before breeding them;
-- keep puppies on premises until they are at least eight weeks old;
-- separate pregnant females at least three days before they give birth;
-- and provide nesting boxes for the mothers and their puppies.
All new pups will have to be microchipped or tattooed at four months, so that they can be identified by county officials tracking health concerns. Pet stores will have to disclose the source of their animals.
The full text of the ordinance, which also prohibits individual pet owners from tying dogs to a fence or a tree for long periods of time, or using a choke collar to tie a dog to a running line, can be found at http://animalcare.lacounty.gov.
