Default Massachusetts rescue in danger

I follow several dog rescue group pages on facebook and they have all been posting about a new bill that is being proposed which would give the department of agriculture the full power to regulate animal rescue in the state.

I don't know how legit the draft that the second link posted is, but if those are indeed what the regulations are going to be that will absolutely destroy rescue up here. It basically means almost all current foster homes would not qualify. Plus the number of vet visits required for imported dogs (which the majority of dogs up here are) will put a huge strain on the rescues' funds. Dogs must be deemed adoptable by the department of agriculture. What are all your thoughts?
