CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

On Tuesday, Charleston City Council will again look at a bill that would change the temperature horses can pull carriages around the peninsula. 

If the bill passes, horses would have to be taken off the streets when the temperatures reaches 95 degrees. Right now, the limit is 98 degrees. 

The new ordinance would also lower the heat index from 125 degrees to 110 degrees. 

Some leaders say these changes would help the animals, while horse owners argue they are not necessary.
