Decision Maker Response
Darrell Steinberg
State Senator

Feb 1, 2013 — Dear Constituent:

Thank you for your recent communication regarding the gassing of animals. I understand you are concerned about the inhumane ways in which animals are gassed, a cruel method of “euthanasia”, as you put it. I thank you for your thoughts regarding this matter.

I am pleased to see that California is listed on the page as a state that has banned the use of gas chambers. I hope other states can take California as an example and ban the use of gas chambers as well.

Please continue to express your views to me so I may best represent you in the state Senate. If you need my assistance or have concerns about any other matter, please do not hesitate to call my office at (916) 651-1529, or email While you are online, please check out my website,, to learn of community events and other issues in which I am involved.
