Senate Bill 75 Gaining Steam In Pierre

Senate Bill 75 Gaining Steam In Pierre

Senate Bill 75 looks to prohibit local government from imposing bans on certain dog breeds.

On Tuesday the bill passed in the State Senate by a vote of 19-16. The bill doesn't interfere with local government's laws related to dogs, but all breeds must be included in the regulation. District 10 Representative Jenna Haggar co-sponsored the bill, and she points out that even some of the most popular dog breeds can attack.

“I have friends who over the years as we were younger were bit by labs and so a question is if you're a child and it's a 100 pound lab, what kind of concerns do you have with all types of breeds of dogs,” Hagger said.

Haggar says that it's up to the owners to keep the community safe by keeping dogs on a leash.
