BSL Weekly Update (1/7/07)

Permission to crosspost is granted. Whether you crosspost in whole or in part, we simply ask that you respect the time and effort involved in putting the update together and acknowledge the BSL Workshop and Defending Dog for the same
____________ _________ _________ _________ _________ _________


~ How you can help ~
We rely very heavily on updates from individuals in or around areas where BSL is proposed. It would be a tremendous help if you could call any of the city clerks for which we have not received updates. We need status updates from the city council meetings as well as copies of proposed ordinances via e-mail if we can get them. A few minutes of your time can help us keep everyone across the entire country up to date!

Many thanks to everyone who contributes information to put these updates together!

Updates can now be sent to Leisa at [email protected] chatter.com or Jodi at [email protected] chatter.com






~ New Proposed BSL ~

LeFlore County, Mississippi - Next city council meeting January 8, 2007

New York, New York - Not scheduled for hearing
State law prohibits breed specific legislation
(Thanks to Mahlon for the below information)

1/6/07 Referred to the NYC Council's Committee on Health. To date, the Chair of that committee has declined to schedule the resolution for a hearing.

The NY City Council's Committee on Health is now chaired by Councilmember Joel Rivera of the Bronx. Email addresses for him, and for the other 12 committee members follow. Complete contact information is at http://www.nyccounc il.info/issues/ committee. cfm?committee_ id=13&ltsbdkey=14

Please write--and if you are a NYC resident, please be sure to point that out--opposing Councilmember Vallone's proposal to roll back New York State's prohibition of breed profiling so that NYC can ban "pit bulls" and other "dangerous dogs."

Hesperia, California
State law prohibits breed specific legislation

City councilman Mike Leonard has directed city staff to look into options that could force residents to spay or neuter the animals or possibly the breed would be banned from the city altogether.

Oklahoma statewide
Representative Paul Wesselhoft has vowed to propose BSL in the next legislative session. We've already had reports from citizens in Oklahoma that this, in fact, is true. After his proposed statewide ban on pit bulls failed last legislative session, his new proposal will be "in a form to allow cities to make their own decision to ban any dog if they think it's in the public interest."
Oklahoma House Members: http://www.lsb. state.ok. us/
Oklahoma Senate Members: http://www.lsb. state.ok. us/




~ Your voice can make a difference! ~


Middletown, Ohio

The Middletown city council will discuss a proposal to DROP their pit bull ban later this month. Please encourage city officials to move forward on this proposal
