Yesterday Connecticut House Bill 6311, a bill to outlaw breed discriminatory laws, passed the next step by receiving a favorable report from the Senate Judiciary Committee. It has been reserved for a full Senate vote and has been placed on Senate Calendar Number 556. If this bill clears the full Senate vote it will go to the Governor to be signed into law and will become effective October of this year.
It was reported a few days ago that this bill cleared the House with a unanimous vote of 142-0. This is an impressive vote, but not really that remarkable because the vast majority of legislators come down on the side of common sense breed neutral laws that protect both the citizens and their rights.
More and more states are recognizing that breed discrimination is something that needs to be avoided, and the citizens need protection from.
Connecticut residents: Please reach out to your Senators and ask them to support this bill.
