Please pass this along to anyone you know who lives in NY and have
them contact their representative and the representative who
introduced this bill.

http://www.akc.org/news/index.cfm?article_id=2878

Part of the bill: Assemblywoman Sandy Galef has introduced A. 11242,
a bill to prohibit ear cropping and tail docking. It is imperative
that New York fanciers and concerned dog owners contact their
representatives immediately to oppose this legislation.

A person found guilty of tail docking would be guilty of a misdemeanor
and could be sentenced up to one year in jail and/or fined up to $500.
Ear cropping would be a misdemeanor punishable by up to one year in
jail and/or a fine of up to $1000.

People contacting their representatives in NY should use the study conducted by the Swedish German Shorthaired Pointer Breed Council. Their report lists the reasons for docking tails and the number and causes of tail injuries after docking was banned in Sweden.

Here is the link to the report:

In addition, The Council of Docked Breeds website provides a lot of information about docking tails.

Hopefully the response from the fanciers will help.
