CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) — Nevada lawmakers have passed a watered-down version of a bill aimed at saving animals from euthanasia when laboratories are done performing research on them.
The Senate unanimously passed SB261 on Thursday.
Lawmakers also introduced a bill to strengthen laws protecting farm animals used in research. Both moves come out of a New York Times investigation of animal suffering at a federal research center.
Federal authorities descended on the Las Vegas Zoo last week after all the animal caretakers walked off the job in mid-September
