Lawmakers are an unreliable breed

I find it puzzling that the House of Delegates and the Senate have failed to come up with a compromise on the pit bull legislation currently stalled in Annapolis ("Pit bull compromise in danger as houses differ," March 13). A simple, breed-neutral approach is necessary to prevent continued discrimination against a single breed based on the irresponsibility of their owners.

If the General Assembly fails to pass this legislation, each member should be required to volunteer 90 days per year at a local animal shelter so that they can see and experience the results of their inability to enact such common sense legislation.
