House Members Oppose Dog Breed Discrimination

Local ordinances that ban specific dog breeds inspired members of the Missouri House to speak out against discrimination.

The House gave initial approval to House Bill 2241, sponsored by Rep. David Gregory, R-St. Louis, which would prevent local jurisdictions from outlawing or regulating dogs based on their breed.

Nearly 50 municipalities have such laws, according to a news release from the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.
