Legislation is pending in Springfield that would keep dogs out of the driver’s seat.

State Representative Dan Burke of Chicago says he has seen a number of people driving with dogs on their laps and calls it a public safety concern.

Under Burke’s proposed law– getting caught with a pet in the driver’s seat would carry a $25 fine.

However the state rep does acknowledge that there are more serious issues on people’s minds, like the state’s financial crisis.
