Tell Rep. Bledsoe: Don't Regulate or Ban Pit Bulls in Michigan

    1. Petition by

      WonderBull: Pit Bull Education

On June 7, 2011, Rep. Tim Bledsoe (D-Grosse Pointe) introduced and referred to the Committee on Regulatory Reform, House Bill No. 4714, known as the "pit bull regulation and prohibition act".

On June 11, 2011, the Committee Chairman, Hugh Crawford (R-Novi), stalled the bill. He stated that he had no intention of taking up Bledsoe's legislation "at this time".

Unfortunately, this does NOT mean that the bill is dead. Despite the Committee Chairman's refusal to advance HB 4714, Rep. Bledsoe plans to discuss the bill with Chairman Crawford the week of June 19, 2011, in hopes that the Chairman will reconsider and move the bill forward.

Join advocates across Michigan in urging Rep. Bledsoe to pull HB 4714 from consideration.
