|I think that looks like a better law than most. I would need to see the final bill before I would be too happy, because lots of changes can happen before it gets to the Governor's desk, even if that is the Senate version. Remember, the House probably has to approve it as well. If it is enacted as drafted, it should prove to be a reasonable way to help curb the problems some cities have with vicious dogs without unduly infringing on the rights of owners who are responsible. It could turn out to be exactly the opposite, though,depending on the way it is enforced after it is enacted. That's the part we can't know until it's too late. It's certainly a good place to start, though. I was particularly happy that they created exceptions for the most typical causes of dog bites, those which are NOT the dog's fault. It should be at least a reasonably good deal, if it is enacted and enforced as it is written now. Keep us informed- it might be a wave of the future, if it works.
