Dogs riding in the back of pickup trucks would have to be crated under a bill that won approval Tuesday in the state House.
The vote was 67-20.
The measure, House Bill 470, next faces action in the state Senate.
The bill would require fines of up to $150 for not crating a dog in a ventilated kennel on the state’s six primary interstate and six secondary interstate roads.
