Illinois House Representative John Bradley has filed a bill that would remove the ban on classifying vicious dogs based on breed. HB1080 was referred to the House Rules Committee on February 3, 2011.

At this time, there is no Senate companion bill.

It is important for Illinois residents to contact the Bill sponsor and each member of the House Rules Committee, as well as their respective House Rep. Unfortunately, it appears the legislator locator on the Illinois State Legislature website is inactive, but if you know what district you live in, you can find your representative here: Illinois General Assembly - Member List
