Senators Mack T. Beans (D(og) - Texas) and Beckett Wilson-Brador (D(og) - Alabama) are seeking co-sponsors for Senate Bill K9: Equal Rights Amendment for Dogs.
"Today, we are pleased to introduce the Equal Rights Amendment for Dogs, or the 'Stella Act'" said Senator Beans, speaking from the steps of the Capawtol. "Too long have we dogs been treated as second class citizens. When one of my constituents came to me with a heartbreaking tale of being excluded from restaurants, movies, and even weddings, I knew it was time to act."
"With the Stella Act," added Senator Wilson-Brador, "we dogs will finally have equal rights, fairness, and equal opportunity! Although we are both Dogocrats, we truly believe this bill will have bipartisan appeal, and we look forward to working with our colleagues in the Repuglican party."
White House press secretary Bo Obama was unavailable for comment, but unnamed staffers indicated that both President Tadpole Pomegranate and V-P Joseph Stains had expressed their support for the bill.
