Letter: Appreciates state rep's support for Goddard's Law

I couldn't help

but notice the Oct. 9 Letter to the Editor, "Goddard's law will 'afford our companion animals with protection."

I am the author and am the primary sponsor of HB-60 which I named after Dick Goddard, longtime Channel 8 weatherman and foremost animal activist in protecting companion animals. It makes cruelty to pets a fifth-degree felony. It passed both chambers with overwhelming support. I would like particularly to thank your state representative, Kristina Daley Roegner for her support of HB60 and for making some key introductions along the way.

Rep. Bill Patmon, Cleveland
