Mo. Senate votes to undo Prop B

JEFFERSON CITY, MO (MISSOURI DIGITAL NEWS) - In what has become an urban vs. rural debate since November, the Missouri Senate voted to undo some Proposition B measures restricting activity in state dog breeding facilities.

Twenty Missouri Senators voted against some of the restrictions voters passed with Proposition B in November.

The bill lifts the 50-dog limit and larger cage size requirements in breeding facilities.

Although the bill passed out of the Senate, Republican St. Louis Senator John Lamping warned there is a problem easing restrictions Missourians voted to pass.

"There's a risk to legislating this way, by proposition. I think I'm quite confident that my district read the bill, did their best to understand the bill, and voted their will. I think this is a very dangerous way to legislate," Lamping said.

The bill now will go to the House.
