I have heard rumors, during the past couple of months, of a bill that, if passed, would allow Breed Specific Legislation in Illinois.
I live in Illinois.
For some reason, up until about ten minutes ago, I have put this thought in the back of my mind and I haven't really considered what it means. If passed, the city which my Pit Bull lives in could, if they choose, ban her or any other dog based on their breed.
Now, the bill has been re-reffered to the Rules Committee as of March 17th which is sort-of a good sign. Some say that a bill that has been re-reffered to the Rules Committee is a place where bills die. However, if there is enough support for the bill it could be moved to the house floor to be voted on. We cannot let this happen. Please, if you would, help by writing to the Rules Committee. Their contact info is below. Please be brief and polite with them.
