Update 3/17/11: Texas bill filings for this type of bill have officially ended; no breed-specific laws were filed during this session. There is still a possibility that a filed bill may be amended to become breed-specific, and we will continue to watch the filed bills. However, “Justin’s Law” was not filed.
According to a recent news report in Houston, supporters of “Justin’s Law” (which would make “pit bull” ownership a felony in Texas) have yet to find a legislator who will file and sponsor the bill.
Texans, you can join the effort to prevent this bill from being filed. Tell your legislators that you do not want them to sponsor “Justin’s Law.”
