PROPONENT TESTIMONY for HB 14 (Rep. Barbara Sears, R-46) is scheduled to be heard in the Criminal Justice Committee on Wednesday, June 8, 2011 at 9:00 a.m., Ohio Statehouse, 77 S. High Street, Columbus, Room 114. Please support this bill by making calls and writing letters to your state representative and the members of this committee! Please show up for support if you can!
Ohio has statewide breed-specific language that declares all “pit bulls” (defined as “any breed commonly known as a pit bull”) in the state to be “vicious” and places restrictions on ownership. HB 14 stands alone as the only Ohio bill that would repeal BSL.
Ohio residents, please write your state legislators and urge them to pass HB 14. The statewide BSL has been a nightmare for citizens, animal control, and humane organizations alike. Repeal is vital if Ohio hopes to move forward and improve public safety and humane treatment of animals.
