This is an annotated transcript from a panel presentation at The Animal Welfare Act at Fifty conference at Harvard Law School. Ani B. Satz discusses the interaction of the Animal Welfare Act (AWA) with state laws, focusing on perceived preemptive effects of the AWA on state anti-cruelty laws. Delcianna Winders discusses how these perceived preemptive effects play out on a federal level, focusing on how the AWA interacts with the Endangered Species Act (ESA) as applied to captive animals who have been identified as threatened or endangered under the ESA.
