LANSING, Mich. (WLNS)—A bill working its way through the house would allow veterans diagnosed with certain conditions the right to use service dogs.
The measure would allow veterans who have been approved for service dogs the right to take them into businesses and on public transportation.
“This is the first stage in starting to shape those gray areas between our service dog regulations and our disabled veterans, our disabled Americans, our disabled Michiganders. You know, we need to start treating all of them as equals,” said service dog advocate Eric Calley.
The bill would fine businesses that turn away properly licensed service dogs.
