(This amendment provides $50,000 the second year from the general fund for the required deposit into the Corrections Special Reserve Fund, to reflect the corrections bed space impact of SB 1218 which specifies penalties related to violation of the prohibition on the killing of a dog or cat that is a companion animal

unless the animal poses an immediate physical threat to a person or is in extreme distress and would suffer further as a result of a delay in seeking veterinary care. This amendment is contingent upon final passage of SB 1218.)
