The Alabama House is set to consider a bill to make it easier for non-profit animal clinics to perform cheap spay and neuter procedures.
Currently, Alabama Veterinarians can't work for non-profits but only vets can own medical clinics.
The bill before the House would let veterinarians work for non-profits, similar to physicians and attorneys.
The legislation is sponsored by Representative Patricia Todd of Birmingham, a Democrat who tried to pass similar legislation last year but failed.
But this year, Republican House Speaker Mike Hubbard is co-sponsoring the bill, and is expected to help it pass quickly.
