A new informational video from the State Bar of Texas explains Texas House Bill 489, “Bootz’s Law,” relating to the rights and responsibilities of people with disabilities, including the use of service animals.
The video, “Veterans and Bootz’s Law: Service Animals and Persons with Disabilities in Texas,” is a 19-minute panel discussion produced by the State Bar of Texas Disability Issues Committee and Disability Rights Texas. An interpreter was on hand to sign for the deaf and hard of hearing.
Panel participants included Brian East, Disability Rights Texas; Michelle Pelletier, service dog coordinator/trainer, Wag That; Denette Vaughn, Disability Rights Texas; Adan Gallegos, Army veteran; and Bootz, the service dog.
