Tennessee Legislative Committee Approves 4 Important New Laws

Today the Senate Judiciary Committee of the State of Tennessee approved four bills introduced by Senator Doug Jackson which will go a long way to protecting children and others from dog attacks. 

I testifed before the committee with regard to these bills. In addition to my legal analysis, the committee heard emotional, true-life accounts of dog maulings from three seriously injured dog bite victims and the daughter of a woman killed by dogs. Also, the District Attorney of the 12th Judicial District testified in favor of passing these new laws. (To read the news article about the laws and the hearing, click here.)

If you live in Tennessee and you want safer streets for children and everyone else, you should immediately tell your legislators to vote in favor of these laws. To make your voice heard, just follow the three easy steps by clicking here.
