New York State's law as it applies to service dogs

New York State's new law including service dogs.  Why did it take so long??  ...The law would...bring New York State into compliance with Federal law by amending the Human Rights Law to define the term "service animal," which would include, but would not be limited to, any guide, hearing or service dog to have the same definition as they do in the Civil Rights Law. The bill also would clarify that a person engaged in training a dog to aid a person with a disability has the same rights and privileges as outlined in the Civil Rights Law as possessed by a person with a disability.
