A bill introduced by Assemblyman James Ohrenschall would prohibit breed specific legislation in the state of Nevada. Assembly Bill 110 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.
AB110 is currently before the Assembly Judiciary Committee, and a hearing was held in that committee on Thursday, March 7. During the short hearing, it became obvious very quickly that the various groups involved are not in agreement on some of the provisions in the bill. While all involved supported the move to prohibit breed specific ordinances, they are miles apart on some other issues, but Senator Ohrenschall indicated they would continue discussions on the bill in an effort to work out those differences.
NEVADA RESIDENTS: Please reach out to the members of the Assembly Judiciary Committee and encourage them to work through their differences and move AB110 forward. Let them know you support this bill, and how very important the provision to prohibit breed specific ordinances in Nevada is to you.
