I was talking to someone on Craigslist and she gave me information and said that I can post what she told me.

"The issue was only discussed briefly. I misunderstood at what level this proposal was at....it has not yet been presented to NYS. First it has to be approved by city council...and at the moment it doesn't have enough supporters to pass. Humane NYC is keeping an eye on the supporters and if it gains a few more they will take further action. In the event it does pass city council and is submitted to NYS and is rejected by NYS....then NYC wants to request to be exempt from the no breed discrimation law."
