Illinois Senate Approves "Puppy Lemon Law"

The Illinois Senate approved what's been dubbed the "puppy lemon law" bill Wednesday.

The measure aims to protect consumers who buy a puppy or kitten from a pet store only to find out the animal is seriously ill.

Customers could get a refund if the pet dies within 21 days of purchase and damages for veterinary expenses.

It's sponsored by Senator Dan Kotowski of Park Ridge.

Critics say this won't do much good since it excludes animal shelters and breeders.

The bill now moves to the house.
