UPDATE: This important bill has passed the state legislature and now just awaits the governor's signature. Please ask Governor Pritzker to sign SB 1672 into law.
All dogs are individuals, yet homeowners and renters insurance companies are currently allowed to drop coverage, deny coverage, and/or charge a higher premium based solely on a pet’s appearance — regardless of that pet’s actual behavior.
But there’s good news: Senate Bill 1672 can help stop this breed-based discrimination in Illinois.
The broad range of pets impacted by outdated insurance company standards includes Great Danes, American Staffordshire terriers, Doberman pinschers, Rottweilers, huskies, and malamutes, plus any dog believed to be mixed with any of these breeds.
Having a certain type of dog should not prevent otherwise responsible consumers from finding and keeping affordable homeowners or renters insurance for their families.
TAKE ACTION: Send a message asking Gov. Pritzker to sign SB 1672 into law.
