The Governor’s Committee on People with Disabilities (GCPD) established a workgroup to gather information and develop solutions to address concerns surrounding service animals. This report summarizes information gathered by the GCPD on concerns and experiences related to interactions of people with disabilities and businesses, informs on how state and federal laws provide civil rights protections to people with disabilities, and provides guidance to policy makers on making potential changes to state laws.
This report is intended to clarify:
•    the difference between the terms “service animal” and “assistance animal”;
•    how service animals are used and where they are permitted to be used;
•    penalties for misrepresenting a dog as a service animal; and
•    the challenges faced by people with disabilities and law enforcement.
Finally, this report contains GCPD’s recommendations for needed changes in Texas law to address enforcement challenges. For a full copy of the report, go to A Report on Texas Service Animal Issues and Proposed Solutions
