Update 5/17: Lodi, NJ has decided to drop the breed-specific proposal.
BSL is prohibited by NJ state law. Lodi’s proposal is modeled after the ordinance in Garfield, which was shot down after massive public protest earlier this week. It is not clear whether Lodi will take the hint and remove the breed-specific language.
