House Bill 944 allows veterans with PTSD to use support animals in public

Military veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder could gain the right to have service animals with them whenever needed in Mississippi.
House Bill 944 says veterans with PTSD could have support animals in hotels, businesses, and other places, a law already set in place for people who are blind or physically impaired.
The bill specifies that service animals are trained to help with tasks such as pulling wheelchairs, fetching dropped items, and calming anxiety attacks by people with PTSD.
The bill passed the House on Thursday and has now moved on to the Senate for more debate.
