On February 14, 2003 California State Senator Hollingsworth introduced SB233 - a bill that would repeal the current law. Late last year, Viva!USA began contacting activists and officials about prosecuting Adidas for the sale of kangaroo skinned soccer cleats in our state. We were hoping to find someone to enforce this law. Now that law is in jeopardy of being changed!
We need your voices to help make sure it stays as is! SB 233 has been referred to the Senate Natural Resources and Wildlife Committee. The hearing has not yet been scheduled. It is expected to occur in late March.
