FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -- Landlords who live on their own property would not be financially liable for a tenant's dog if it attacks another person under a bill passed by the Kentucky Senate. Republican Sen. Chris Girdler of Somerset called the bill an effort to reinforce personal responsibility and protect small-business owners. Senate Democrats express concerns that public health services like Medicaid would have to pay for medical costs in the event of a dog bite. They offered an amendment requiring insurance coverage by either the landlord or tenant in the event of an attack. The bill passed 29-8 Monday without the amendment. It now moves to the House for consideration.
