House delays vote on service animal law

assistant dog

The House delayed voting on a measure that would give business owners more discretion under state law to ask people with misbehaving service animals to leave.

Many within the service animal community that opposed previous versions of the bill have since dropped their opposition while others have come around to support the measure they say will help educate police, employers and service animal owners.

The bill would allow business owners to ask people to leave if their service animals are out of control or are not housebroken.

Earlier versions of the proposal called for the registration of service animals and for people who lie about having service animals to face criminal penalties.

The House delayed voting on Senate Bill 1382 on Monday.
