The following quote is what Wayne Pacelle had to say about Proposition 2 passing in California:
"People know what happened in California, and they know it can happen again and again. They know that no group has passed more ballot measures than we have. They know we have a focused strategy. They know we have a budget of $150 million a year. And they know we're ready for a fight."
-Wayne Pacelle, President and CEO, Humane Society of the United States
