Under current law, Florida prohibits municipalities from passing breed specific legislation. The Florida House currently has HB 543 in committee and SB 1276 has not yet gone to committee. Both of these bills would overturn the ban and allow municipalities to ban breeds they deem dangerous.

Please sign the petition and contact your state representatives and senators!

From the Petiton site:

This is not a Pit Bull issue anymore ladies and gentlemen; this could very well be the start of the largest scale BSL in history. Meaning, any city or county within the State of Florida has the right to discriminate against any breed of dog they want. Therefore, Rottweiler, Dobermans, American Bulldogs, Husky, Boxer, Chow Chow, German Shepherds, Mastiffs, Akita or any other breed they wish to ban, can be and will be done.

The status of the bill can be found here:

hey, karmic, thanks for posting this!!! i've signed it. BSL is a load of BS and I'll never agree with it. And never is a word I rarely use.

Thank you!

I found out today it passed the committee with 9 yeas and 2 nays. This is not good news!
