How did government affect you in 2006?

We compiled a top 10 list of the big government decisions -- mostly local ones -- that affected our lives in 2006 and ranked them in order of importance. Do you agree?

Pit bull ordinance

Plenty of pit bull owners in Springfield said goodbye to the family pet because of a restrictive new breed-specific law passed by the City Council last year. Some folks dumped their dangerous dogs in the county; others sold them; plenty more simply ignored the law, which requires anybody who owns a pit bull in the city limits to register the dog and follow a series of safety procedures. The law even spurred the county to pass its own animal control ordinance, though the commission - smartly, we believe - focused not just on one dangerous breed but on vicious dogs as a category.
