Previous Alert for Maine HP836/LD1192
A hearing held in the Nevada Senate Judiciary Committee on AB110 this week hit a snag when one of the committee members insisted that municipalities should have the ability to regulate dogs in any manner in which they choose – including breed specific measures. AB110 would prohibit municipalities from passing breed specific ordinances, and its passage would force cities to target the root of problem dogs, irresponsible and reckless dog owners.
It is extremely important that Nevada residents contact the members of the Senate Judiciary Committee immediately and let them know you support this very important bill that would prohibit BSL. Please provide the members of the committee with facts, statistics and studies on the failure of breed specific legislation.
Please make your voice heard and help this bill make it out of committee!
