Animal abuser registry too expensive for the state

Lead in text: 
Now legislators want to provide Michigan’s online background check system, I-CHAT, to animal shelters for free to offset costs of doing background checks on potential animal adopters.
Animal shelters would be required to do criminal background checks on people wishing to adopt animals to ensure they haven't been convicted of animal abuse charges under a package of bills under consideration in the state Senate this week.

Bill for animal abuse registry delayed in Senate

Lead in text: 
Logan’s Law would also demand that pet stores and animal shelters refuse animal sales and adoptions to offenders on the list.
A proposal to establish an animal abuser registry in Michigan has been put on hold in the Senate. There was no vote held at today's Senate Judiciary Meeting regarding Logan's Law. Logan's Law is a bill that, if passed, would create a registry for people convicted of animal abuse.
