UPDATE: Washington State: House Committee to VOTE on Prohibiting BSL
UPDATE: If you have not already called or emailed the House Judiciary Committee members in support of House Bill 2117, please do so. The committee will take a vote in executive session on Thursday morning. This is an excellent opportunity for the American Kennel Club to support a positive measure for responsible dog owners.
On Tuesday, January 16th the Washington State House Judiciary Committee heard testimony on House Bill 2117, which would amend the state’s dangerous dog law and prohibit local governments from banning possession of a particular breed or declaring a specific breed of dog to be dangerous or potentially dangerous.
Please support responsible dog owners and breeders of all breeds by asking your legislators to approve this legislation.
