Pits in the news and info on Breed Specific Legislation.

Postby pitsnok » January 28th, 2011, 10:47 pm

Shared from another source:


Oklahoma Senator Ralph Shortey has introduced a bill (Cody's Law) that would eliminate the language prohibiting breed specific ordinances in Oklahoma.

The bill has been set to be introduced at a first reading on February 2, 2011.

You can track the bill's progress here: http://webserver1.lsb.state.ok.us/WebBillStatus/main.html

At this time, the Senate bill has no House companion.

It is imperative for Oklahoma residents to reach out to their respective legislators NOW, in this Bill's initial stage, and voice their opposition to it.

Ugh. I'm sorry. Okla's kind of gone a little loopy in the government recently. And I live waaay too close to the OK border to be comfortable with this... :(

And yet another state joins the ranks of those unwilling to hold the irresponsible owners accountable. :pissed:
