Update 11/15/11: Confirmed! Hearing will be held on Nov 16.
HB 14 is a comprehensive dog control bill that would repeal Ohio’s statewide BSL. HB 14 has gotten further in the process than similar attempts in previous years, and has the support of the Ohio Dog Wardens Association, so we have high hopes for its success. HB 14 passed the House in June and has been assigned to the Senate Judiciary Committee.
The Ohio Legislature is back from summer break, and HB 14 is on the move again. The bill is tentatively scheduled for a Judiciary Committee hearing and sponsor testimony in mid-November (possibly 16th). We’ll have more details about the hearing time as they become available. In the meantime, please contact the Senate Judiciary Committee and your own Ohio state senator and tell them that you support HB 14 and the repeal of statewide breed-specific discrimination!
Contact the Senate Judiciary Committee and urge them to pass HB 14 out of committee:
