— The Senate Judiciary Committee has been told that increased penalties for cockfighting would help deter the sport in Kansas.

The committee was told Monday that Kansas is a magnet for the cockfighting. That’s because while it’s a felony in surrounding states, it’s a misdemeanor in Kansas.

Sen. Julia Lynn, an Olathe Republican, said making cockfighting a felony means those arrested could face larger fines.

The committee took no action on the bill.

Looks to me like this Sen.Julia Lynn wants larger fines.Big money,more,more,money,Oh boy we can get more money.Look like these people would get a life.You have people has lose thier jobs their homes and they want to side around and talk a about a cockfighting bill.Give me a break people.The good old U.S.A kills 1000s chickens every day for food.If they make it legal,they could taxes it.Make more money that way than they could making it a felony.
