D.C. Council Passes Emergency Legislation Allowing Dogs at Restaurants, Bars With Patios


The D.C. Council passed emergency legislation Tuesday to allow dogs to accompany their owners at restaurants and beer gardens that have outdoor spaces.

The city's health department recently caught attention when it started enforcing an obscure law banning dogs from establishments that serve food.

Mayor Muriel Bowser is expected to sign the emergency legislation in the coming days.
