A bill that would make it illegal to sell dogs, cats and other animals along highways and other public areas has passed through a House Committee.

The Committee on the Administration of Criminal Justice voted 9-3 for the bill by Rep. Tony Ligi, of Metairie.

In its amended form, the bill would allow animals to be sold from private homes, at pet stores, by licensed breeders, at humane societies, by animal welfare groups and at events sponsoring pet adoptions.

It now heads to the House floor for more debate.
