The Animal License Fees Initiative (07-0057) was shooting for the November 2008 general election ballot in California as an initiated state statute. Its supporters would have had to turn in 433,971 valid signatures in order to make the November ballot. However, the California Secretary of State announced on May 2, 2008 that the measure had failed to qualify.
The objective of the initiative was to mandate that all cities, counties and governmental entities within the state of California are prohibited from charging any animal licensing or permit fees in excess of $50.00.
- Entitles senior citizens and Medicare and Medi-Cal recipients to a 50 percent fee reduction.
- Prohibits localities from enforcing local law conflicting with initiative statute.
