CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - A Nevada lawmaker is proposing legislation to allow stand-alone bars to permit dogs to enter at the discretion of an establishment’s owner.

Sen. James Settelmeyer says the bill being drafted for the 2015 Legislature was suggested by a constituent in Virginia City, about 20 miles southeast of Reno.

Some taverns in the historic mining town seem to play favorites when it comes to allowing dogs in with paying customers.

The Minden Republican told the Reno Gazette-Journal (https://on.rgj.com/1E0o7oQ ) some constituents have indicated other people are allowed to bring dogs into Virginia City bars and they think they should be able to enter with their dogs, too.

Settelmeyer says many Virginia City taverns allow people in with their dogs.
