WLNS.com reports that lawmakers in the Michigan Senate have approved a bill that would allow dogs on patios at restaurants, watering holes, and other establishments in the state. The House of Representatives now will review the proposal. The language in the Senate approved bill would not require businesses to allow dogs, and also allows for local municipalities to continue a ban on dogs at eateries.

Dogs would not be allowed into the main area of business, there would have to be direct outdoor access to the patio. Businesses would be required to keep all areas free of dog hair and to immediately disinfect areas of accidents or over-joyous welcomes. Dogs would also have to be leashed, may not sit in a chair, or in a person’s lap.
