The Arizona Restaurant Association is behind HB 2401, which would limit service animals allowed in eateries to dogs and miniature horses. It's a relatively minor tweak to the law to stop people from taking all manner of creatures out with them under the guise of service animals and highlights the new trend of using miniature horses as service animals. (Bethany Barnes of Arizona-Sonoran News Service has details on the bill here.) The bill passed the House Health Committee on a unanimous vote earlier this month and passed the entire House of Representatives on a 58-1 vote on Tuesday, Feb. 26, and is scheduled for a hearing in the Senate Commerce, Energy and Military Committee next Wednesday, March 6.
