The Senate took no action on a bill Tuesday night that would have changed the state law on dog bites, after the House and Senate passed drastically different versions of the bill.

The bill was meant to counteract Court of Appeals decision in April that holds pit bull owners and their landlords to that standard, but holds owners of other breeds liable only if the dog had a previous violent incident.
