CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu has issued an executive order re-establishing a commission on the humane treatment of animals, which prepares a biennial report on animal cruelty cases and legislation.

The commission was last re-established and amended in 2017.

The commission documents animal cruelty-related convictions, proposed bills to ensure the safety and welfare of domestic animals and New Hampshire residents, and changes in statutes.

“Re-establishing the Governor’s Commission on the Humane Treatment of Animals ensures that New Hampshire continues our proud and time honored tradition of protecting our pets and animals,” Sununu said in a statement Monday.
