You'd you don't survive without without totally -- Can't just be a model out of the -- -- haven't done anything slipping back and forth between the Tonys and that and I'll be actually thinking of Eugene. On the front for a. Have a great. Great weekend always great to hear -- your voices. I think some used to have fun and nice mr. movie wonderful. -- stay with us everyone we're going to be talking about some of the things that are going to be happening right after we go to the news. Well what we have all learned is that the number one way we can stop the euthanasia of thousands and thousands of dogs and cats in our area. Is -- spaying and neutering. All of our wonderful animal organizations are on a mission to help and several have joined hands for very special match clinic. Oral one day spay neuter marathon. Maria Torres it's wonderful lady who's been on our show were so happy to have and today the founder of the Villa lobos rescue center. And star of animal planet's apples and rulings. -- to to tell us all about it and T is going to be next Thursday. You don't. You are. Popular act. Now or. -- there. And now you. Know because somebody. Clinic at the end street in your program. -- -- -- -- arms coming here. Hi we and they are allies. Or in order a -- Shell. You know we start to -- around and or in. You know. What Kabul in. It. May. Be in the later I mean littered what are -- Alarm. We have. But that not that you get it it's. There are inherent. They're. And -- up there with a particular. It's a wonderful idea it really is and it it can't be done enough in its interest in listening to you talk about. In fact how very progressive the West Coast is and in some ways the East Coast and -- were catching on an I think. Are incredible animal organizations of which are meant. Who just day in day out do the hard work and the and the painful work I mean it's it's it's a heartbreak deceit. So many animals that need homes and then somebody that you have to be euthanized as we started saying the answer is being neutered so. What you all are doing on Thursday. I love this is you gonna take the first twenty dogs and and in you are going to help you you pretty much focused on one area code because the need is so great there. It -- down. It is great -- how I'm. It though they're white -- one. You know. -- chance. At that point -- sure you. Staying here on in state. That much you it yeah and we're trying to -- -- DEA. Yelled at them their doors at 70. -- -- -- -- help combat. Yes -- the wonderful thing. And doctor -- Norris and doctor Zachary Carol ark animal hospital just to terrific people I mean in the early days of animal activism they were there in our -- legend and so there and they're gonna setup. Like eight dimension which yeah. And how -- you doing. Work. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- What we've always urged. Poll here -- without their little eleven. Atlanta. You know me. You know while a -- and well you know such a well worn by the people here lol oh yeah it it will. We get should be like and it's. And LA -- Or not we can both play. The amount parents saying. We're not cheered. For. Each year and it -- such. A multiple. That's a problem it firm it like that age and lack of re sort and -- lack of money. Firm. Should know. Weren't at. Our firm that helped me get this morning -- -- at a man.

She hit it in out I don't even a little dot -- -- It. Now it is. And and and it's interesting that was it before Katrina post-Katrina. Clearly all of the groups have joined hands on many different things which is the -- months but he. Working against the working with each other and yet. As a innocent it's so deeply deeply into an an an is lack of functions but he's out there listening and even if they don't have a dog. Know that anything you can contribute to any of these groups who were trying to get animals spayed neutered. That is the solution. Not just the solution for having to kill so many dogs and cats which we are but it's also for quality of life. And that's so real and so glad. -- Her -- and a return to send she's gonna be real powerhouse and him. And that she's joined hands as well. Thank you Q thank you for everything that you do and it'll be mad -- on. On June 12. And we we will stay in touch. And -- wire -- FaceBook -- -- today and number out there should actually relate to adopt. This team yet to multiples for these parolees that's our FaceBook page -- -- -- -- mile it's okay Greyhound and it happened and the wire. Even here at eight information -- Number you know what -- indeed yes well sure okay thank you thank you said grant thanks Steve and I agree we can and -- I think you. Hope everyone stays with us when we come back we're going to be talking to Clancy do those about an event -- -- the governor talking he's signing. When you -- that. Well we are back and John Clancy do those are you on the line with us. Okay. -- is going to be joining us on a little different than our normal Friday what's happening. But something that did happen today I think a tremendous import to up the state. Is not the government yes the governor did sign the bill. Not that in essence will attempt to stop the lawsuit. Against oil and gas industry hello plan saying. Hello to our our view I'm doing fine. -- were you shocked. No definite shock to -- this is Bobby Jindal the data loss it was probably be the next day. Elegant system and the bad ideas under element under the action to stop and he has. Or at least so far. Culpability. For the bill. He's supported. The legislature that is usually aligned with them. Patrick and spent a little bit of time studying it because -- Politico well Syria to concerns. Attorney general expresses concern that will be -- insert thank you for your opinion site. -- -- -- -- and he can have a -- action but nobody should really be Christ. It wasn't just buddy Caldwell was what over twenty law professors from around the country. We're just showing deep concerns that this will affect. -- the various. Suits against BP. We're -- try to -- -- tornado at last count it will more than eighty. They lost legal -- around the country who -- who signed on to that same legal opinion. And so they are saying or they were saying to the governor. Be careful because by signing this you may be endangering. Various other lawsuits non related. And in its inhabitants are legitimate and what lawyers call tolerable -- Look. If you get it lowered and rom you can get ten different opinions. And this is America well -- -- hope -- opinion but over that at this point. Only the judges now devote. For now collect -- vote everybody opinion to -- -- -- Bobby Jindal two but our foreign. Roberto had chosen not to go to veto it but it's you exercise is rocker. Which is that an amber over to the -- -- governor. Decide the bill now. The political fight over this issue is over but the legal fight is just beginning because there's still going to be challenged. -- constitutionality. With regard to retroactivity. And that's going to be challenged or at least litigated in terms of witnesses language actually. Their this spill was left out of one committee in the senate. And logged on to another bill. Basically practice -- up the other bill became this little. More friendly committee to get into the senate floor listening to. This bill was actually written in about eighteen hour. So a lot of room of the governor's. Executive council mr. Enright it was very very thoroughly debated that really. The pay was cut off from the senate committee. It was -- on the floor house senate. You can independent here. Political persuasion in your opinion about this that he might think it was ineptly debated in my it was not debated but it was debated. And somebody's -- warnings were expressed. On the floor of the senate and all of order I'll get past. But there's been issues one that really result we've we've we've we've. We have to do we resolve the political discussion in favor of the bill. But now the real discussion. Of the legal discussion and analysis of -- language. And I'm a lawyer and try to be a law professor but it's pretty much constitutional law will grow warm. When the government grant someone -- right. The courts interpret the grant of that right liberally not liberal vs conservative -- broadly. When government takes away right. The courts. Interpret the kicking away -- -- right very narrow who that they don't take away more rights and aren't shouldn't be taken away but I have to look at the language of the law it. -- -- And Jack has that been part yet by a judge. And whatever judge worn -- -- -- -- it's going to be appealed all the way to the Supreme Court stepped gonna take time so. The legal battle that we're about to seed beat him on several well. Over the constitutionality. -- -- scope and application. And little verses. Much signature liberal vs intentional. In Chad based meaning. And then there's the BP. Is gonna. Sure try to. So you know tested to see it some he piece of markets up or the lawyers who BP are ethnically borrow to file. Emotional social circle -- a new low but see the potential tropical they don't do not doing their -- their -- So that Nicole and then there was a warning that possibly are there equal claims. As attorney general Caldwell says that is -- if you sit below quote overly broad. Which is a term of -- in the legal community meaning it's. Overly -- -- you know agreements. That if we don't know hollow. Many other possible claims for beyond. This flood protection authority lawsuit like PG upper. And so there are lots of claims -- that potentially. Are gonna go away or might never. Which -- because there. All of that it's going to be determined by the court struck at chase title battle. Typical super abstract and take a year more likely to penetrate. Two years maybe more so I think it's what regional and bigger we're carpal. Is -- -- going to be here. Yesterday -- tweeted if Jindal signs the bill killing the -- sued it and helps BP he'll go down. As the worst Louisiana governor ever. Yeah -- it figured you're recommending using quoted correctly. You'll be remembered as the -- just because -- signed the bill. But by signing the bill if the bill winds up letting BP to -- Having been warned about it. Do you think he'll be viewed. Even his supporters with a personal Micah we didn't tentative. Well it's not like nobody told them and you know what which it has been. Compatible option. He could still killed as this lawsuit deputy director. Our -- support the lawsuit market -- a big oil and gas so that people. But because this is an issue that ought to be answered in the court -- -- we have of course a lot to -- -- But let it fail on its own its it's gonna fail but politically to decide and otherwise. But it rewards of doing way more than it was intended inadvertently. And the governor was specifically told Europe about to unleash. Got all of which is what we're calling it demand that there -- -- controls Godzilla and slaughter is its global law. If it goes where it goes the took to the court now Bobby Jindal doesn't get a vote anymore. You had other options -- -- called legislature back to a special session are considered just one bill which has been done before. And that could have been done in July early on -- along the way. Now I'm wonder -- if you could help me clarify here and better understand something if he had done nothing with the bill not vetoed it nor signed it into law and just left it then what would have happened. It would become law after twenty days without his signature holy days is politics. Well it's. The target -- -- civic lesson and if it's a lot faster where. More than ten days ago in the legislative session the governor candidate to -- it. But it doesn't sign it within ten days we've become what other signature. It is a lot past -- western and eastern Goebel poured into the session Wednesday in the recent what matters is a good reason. Typically hold on July passing in the last ten -- what governor any governor needs wartime that it does. Rush a bill that comes in at the end cool that's exactly yeah but he had one other option. The governor get to a point the members to the architectural or people. He's already reported three or four since it's simple. It's only a matter of time forty to appoint more optic at least one other board members term expires. At the end of this month so. By the end of this year -- the latest. But sometime next year people have all the votes on that board to adjust to all the losses by abandoning and it no appeal from that. The Oakland this lawsuit to challenge about what the trial court it's going to be ripped a drag on for I think at least two year. And that is going to affect those or we don't know how it will affect -- and BP. Not going to be finally decided until either the state of the US -- court -- Our final straw a lot of but the final court. Yeah that's what any decision will become final. And we await -- started -- -- the Supreme Court -- of the trial court well there are going to be motions to going to be. And it just took those motions are going to be oral argument on the -- majority regular partner. -- to an initial ruling with an opinion and -- got a lot so to file an appeal. I'll appeal that there were -- the rich granite state distraught briefing congress in a briefing that argument on both sides. And it -- oral arguments and they retiring at the -- leadership that -- particular to sprinkle the process are network. Our application poor Rick. Briefed on both sides oral arguments that it takes a long time. It takes a long time I appreciate your time and clearly this will be something we'll be talking about in the earlier days and months ahead. I think Q Clancy devote so much thanks going to stay with -- everyone will be right back. Hope you'll stay with this we're going to be talking to two wonderful shafts. All about a great -- stay with -- now let's go to the news.
