As Director for MCABSL …I am urging everyone to please take action now and write, call, e mail or fax this committee below and your legislators, to pass and approve the two bills mentioned below. This is the best shot Miami~Dade County and the rest of Florida, will ever have of removing BSL. Thanks!
Florida state law prohibits municipalities from passing BSL, but allows BSL that was in place prior to October 1, 1990. The most famous of these grandfathered laws is the breed ban in Miami-Dade County .
