Doggie Dining Bill in Maryland

A bill before Maryland's General Assembly would allow restaurants to have pets in outdoor dining areas. (Although many restaurants currently welcome dogs, it is actually not officially legal.) The Dining Out Growth Act of 2011, sponsored by delegates Morhaim, Cardin, Clagett and George, was introduced on February 11.

I'll post updates as we get them, but the expectation was that the bill would not be hotly contested--"no one had signed up to speak against it."

Read more in the Baltimore Sun article, "Diners with dogs may soon be saying 'Bone Appetit'."  

The full text of the bill: House Bill 941
