Rally in Annapolis

The Maryland General Assembly, consisting of our elected Delegates and State Senators, usually only meets from January through April each year.  However, in April, when the 2012 session concluded, Maryland's budget was not balanced.  Governor O'Malley called a Special Session of the General Assembly to concentrate on fixing the budget.  This Special Session was held on Monday, May 14 - Tuesday, May 15.

 

On Tuesday, May 15, several individuals organized a rally in Annapolis to encourage Maryland's lawmakers to create a law to overturn the court decision of Tracey v. Solesky, creating strict liability for "pit bull" owners and landlords in Maryland.

Pauline and Di from B-More Dog joined the 200+ protesters on Tuesday where they listened to legislators who support changing the law created by the Tracey v. Solesky case and met with lawmakers, lobbyists and other protesters.

 

As many as 4 different bills were introduced this week by several lawmakers aimed at correcting the recent court ruling.  Since this Special Session was called to focus only on the state's budget, lawmakers did not take any steps to pass these bills into law at this time.

However, the General Assembly will meet for another Special Session over the summer, in July or August.  We are hopeful that movement will be made to pass a law at this time.  As more info becomes available, B-More Dog will keep you posted!  

 

Check the B-More Dog Facebook page where you can find more photos, links to news articles and videos of the rally!
