Missouri Governor Jay Nixon (D) this evening signed into law a compromise dog-breeding bill, the result of last week’s agreement between some supporters and opponents of voter-approved Proposition B.

First, Nixon signed a bill this morning that stripped several regulations out of Prop B, including the 50-dogs-per-breeder cap and requirements for larger cages and annual veterinary exams.

House and Senate negotiators have failed to reach an agreement on a congressional redistricting map before today’s self-imposed deadline.

Republican House leaders had wanted a compromise map ready to pass before Easter Weekend, in order to have time to override a potential veto from Democratic Governor Jay Nixon during the regular session.
