This is a step in the right direction for animal rights activist that believe we shouldn’t have laws that ban specific dog breeds.

According to Fox 17, State Senator David Robertson introduced Senate Bill 741 which would keep local governments from being able to create bans on specific dog breeds.  The bill wouldn’t stop private property like housing complexes, from having breed prohibitive policies, but would keep cities and townships from banning breeds like Pitbulls.

Fox 17 says the bill now needs to be approved by both the state Senate and House before going to the governor’s desk.  We shall see how this plays out.
