Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Criminal Code of 2012.

Provides that the refusal to answer questions from a law enforcement officer permitted under federal regulation creates a permissive inference that the animal is not a service animal and the law enforcement officer may require the person to remove the animal from the place of public accommodation. Misrepresentation of a service animal is a petty offense. Defines "service animal".
