Annapolis, Md. (WUSA) -- Maryland Legislators are aiming to finally undo a court ruling declaring pit bulls "inherently dangerous."

A hearing took place on Wednesday on a bill that would shift liability from landlords to owners and their insurers.  

In addition, the bill would declare all dogs as potential hazards, regardless of breed.  However, the law would allow owners to defend against suits by arguing their pet was provoked or never showed signs of aggression.
