AB110 will be considered by the Assembly Judiciary Committee on Thursday, March 7 at 8:00 A.M. If you wish to attend the hearing and speak on the issue, you may do so via video conference at the Grant Sawyer Bldg at 555 E Washington Ave.
The bill, introduced by Assemblyman James Ohrenschall, would prohibit breed specific legislation in the state of Nevada. More specifically, AB110, would revise provisions concerning the criteria and procedures for determining whether a dog is dangerous or vicious; providing that a dog may not be determined to be dangerous or vicious based solely on its breed.
NEVADA RESIDENTS, please reach out to the members of the Assembly Judiciary Committee, as well as your respective state legislators, and ask them to support AB110. Let them know that laws that target dogs based on their appearance rather than their behavior creates communities that are more vulnerable to dangerous dogs, not less. The passage of AB110 would mean cities and counties, in drafting animal control ordinances, would have to tackle the root cause of dangerous dogs, irresponsible and reckless dog owners, rather than pass a blanket law that regulates all members of specific breeds.
