On Friday, May 24, 2013, Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval signed AB110 into law! This means that effective October 1, 2013, municipalities in Nevada are prohibited from passing breed specific ordinances!
In February, Assemblyman James Ohrenschall introduced Assembly Bill 110 which revises the provisions related to the criteria and procedures for determining whether a dog is dangerous or vicious, specifically stating that a dog may not be determined dangerous based solely on its breed.
Although the bill got off to a bit of a rocky start when the various groups involved were not in agreement on some of the other provisions in the bill, once passing that initial hurdle, it sailed through the legislature.
After two years of hard work and dedication by many animal welfare organizations and individuals, Governor Sandoval signed the bill the very same day it hit his desk.
