Dogs in service vests are an increasingly common sight in public spaces. But it may surprise you to learn that there is little legal regulation over the training and certification of service dogs and emotional support animals. Lawmakers here in Hawaii are considering a bill that would begin to change that.

Guests:

Bill Hoshijo, Executive Director, Hawaii Civil Rights Commission

Francine Wai, Executive Director, Disability and Communication Access Board, Hawaii Department of Health
