Our Purpose: To advocate for the people and programs dedicated to laboratory animals used in biomedical research.
Through the careful monitoring of legislation, rules and policies, we helped protect biomedical research. Just a few of our successes are listed below.
- In the two-year legislative session ending in January 2018, NJABR monitored over 200 animal related bills and provided educational guidance on several that would have an adverse impact on biomedical research in New Jersey.
- We provided information and secured amendments to bills that would have prohibited non-face-to-face sales of dogs and cats, including research animals. We also successfully amended bills to exempt research animals from legislation that would have created unnecessary regulations for the research community concerning animals brought into the state. Our carefully crafted amendments ensure that research will continue without disruption in New Jersey.
- We educated individuals about the anti-research goals of the misguided “Beagle Freedom Bill” and about New Jersey’s research institutions’ existing animal adoption programs, which put the needs of research animals first.
- We monitored regulatory processes at the federal and state levels and submitted comments to both the United States Department and the New Jersey Division of Consumer Affairs on issues of importance to biomedical research.
