A bill introduced in the Nevada General Assembly would prohibit municipalities from passing breed specific ordinances in the state. 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.
On April 15, 2013, AB110 was unanimously passed in the House. The bill has now advanced to the Senate, where it has been assigned to the Senate Judiciary Committee. A hearing date on the bill has not yet been scheduled, but should be set in the near future.
NEVADA RESIDENTS: Please reach out to the members of the Senate Judiciary Committee, as well as the legislators for your district, and ask them to SUPPORT this bill!
