Auburn, KY: City may lower insurance requirement (BSL)

Auburn, KY, has BSL that includes a requirement for “pit bull” owners to have $300,000 in liability insurance. This is one of the highest liability insurance requirements in the nation and has proven impossible for people to obtain. Consequently, Auburn is considering lowering the liability insurance requirement to $100,000.

Why not encourage Auburn to repeal its breed-specific law altogether?

Mills asked to lower the requiring $300,000 worth of coverage down to $100,000 because it is impossible for dog owners to adhere to that request as there is no one who will supply that coverage. […]

Mills will bring the amendment to the city council in January and then it will have to have two readings before passage.
