In May 2012, the Senate President and House Speaker convened the Task Force to Study Court Decision regarding Pit Bulls. The Task Force considered the April decision of the Court of Appeals in Tracey v. Solesky; how it affected the common law of Maryland; and what similar common law and statutes were found in other states. Further, the Task Force studied the viability and definition of dog breed-specific standards in Maryland law and local prohibitions, as well as any issues concerning property insurance arising from the Court decision. Finally, the Task Force made recommendations for potential legislation.
The Task Force last met in October 2012.
