The first-ever crowd-sourced bill was approved this week by the state Assembly with a 72-0 vote.
The bill would give pet owners new measures to provide for their pets once an owner passes away, including not immediately putting an animal to sleep.
“Too often, special-interest groups draft legislation behind closed doors, keeping the public in the dark,” Gatto said in a statement. “In contrast, crowdsourcing this bill on the Wiki platform allowed for a fully transparent brainstorming, drafting and editing process that incorporated ideas from a large group of people.”
