Springfield, MO: Committee to review BSL

Thanks, Jodi, for this alert!

The Springfield, Missouri city council is set to review its ordinance related to pit bulls. The issue has been assigned to the council’s Plans and Policies Committee. Please take a moment to encourage the committee members to pursue a breed-neutral ordinance that puts the focus on irresponsible and negligent dog owners rather than a specific breed of dog. According to the article below, the total number of dog bites from all breeds of dogs is virtually unchanged since BSL has been in place in Springfield.

Chair: Doug Burlison, dburlison@springfieldmo.gov
Nick Ibarra, nibarra@springfieldmo.gov
Thomas Bieker, tbieker@springfieldmo.gov
