Beijing to protect use of guide dogs

By XIN WEN


Beijing's legislature is considering punishing those who refuse to allow eligible guide dogs to enter public spaces or public transportation.


The provision is one of a number of new articles in a draft regulation designed to improve accessibility in the capital that underwent a second deliberation on July 28, with lawmakers making new proposals following a first review in May.


A warning or criticism in a circulated notice will be given to entities or individuals that deny guide dogs with work permits access to public spaces or public transportation when accompanied by visually impaired people, said Hao Zhilan, from the Urban Construction and Environmental Protection Committee of the Standing Committee of the Beijing People's Congress.
