The New York State Veterinary Medical Society (NYSVMS) announced that it will present its first Star Legislator Award to Assemblyman William Magee on the evening of August 25, 2011 at the Hall of Veterinary Health at the NYS Fair.

The NYSVMS established its Star Legislator Award in March 2011 to honor a state legislator who has demonstrated a strong commitment to working with the NYSVMS to assure the protection and well-being of animals, and safeguard the veterinarian’s professional scope of practice.

Magee will receive an imprinted and sculpted star award, and a $500 donation will be made in his name to the NYSVMS Scholarship that annually benefits a veterinary student at the Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine in Ithaca, NY.

NYSVMS is recognizing the Magee with the award because of the work he has done and leadership he has shown on issues vital to veterinary medicine, in assisting his colleagues in making informed decisions about animal issues using facts and scientific data from experts in veterinary science and animal husbandry and in introducing legislation that protect responsible animal owners and their pets.
