Support MA bill that would make false representation of a service animal illegal.
Dear Chairman Brownsberger, Chairwoman Cronin and Honorable Committee Members:
By signing this petition I am indicating my support for H.2277, An Act relative to the misrepresentation of a service animal, filed by Representative Kimberly Ferguson. This bill would make intentionally misrepresenting a pet or other animal as a service animal a civil infraction punishable by a fine and/or community service. H.2277 is crucial in protecting the rights and privileges of those with trained, legitimate service dogs and their access to public spaces. I ask that you report H.2277 favorably from the Joint Committee on Judiciary following its hearing.
