Freshman Assemlyman Eric Houghtaling wants to ban New Jersey veterinarians from declawing cats.
The assemblyman from Neptune Township is a member of the Assembly Agriculture and Natural Resources Committee.

Dem Freeholder Candidate Sticks Belmar Taxpayers With The Legal Fees To Fund His Ambition
Like his friend Governor Chris Christie, Belmar Mayor Matt Doherty stuck taxpayers with the legal bills to fund his political ambition.
Doherty’s unlawful conduct in attempting to hide the identities of donors to his campaign for Monmouth County freeholder has cost the taxpayers of Belmar $122,910 for the legal fees of the citizens who successfully challenged Belmar’s violations of the Faulkner Act and the New Jersey Civil Rights Act in Court. When the borough’s legal fees to defend “Matt Law” are added, Doherty’s folly has cost Belmar taxpayers over $200,000.
