House OKs bill to do away with transport leash law

Print | Front Page | Email this story

NASHVILLE (AP) - The House has unanimously approved a bill to do away with a leash law for dogs and cats while being transported in Tennessee.

Several members howled like dogs in jest as the chamber voted 96-0 on Thursday to pass the bill sponsored by Republican Rep. Pat Marsh of Shelbyville.

The measure would whittle down the little-known law requiring a leash or restraint for any dog or cat in transport to only apply to animals that might have rabies.

The Senate had previously passed its version of the bill on 30-0 vote, meaning the bill now heads for the governor's desk.
