And while it says it takes effect April 1, 2009, most likely whoever
wrote that has never issued dog licenses and what should have been
enacted was that it takes effect for 2009 dog licenses. Most dog
licenses are obtained before April 1st, so it looks like only those
who miss the 4/1 deadline next year will have to pay the additional
$1!! Or am I misinterpreting this?
We do need to remember that the folks in the Legislature and
Legislative staff are human. We all make mistakes, as careful as we try to be.
