Help end breed-restrictive insurance practices

SUCCESS! Gov. Pritzker signed HB 1049 into law!

On June 9, 2023, Gov. Pritzker signed HB 1049 into law, helping end breed-restrictive insurance practices.  Thanks to all the advocates who took action on this bill.

Urge the Governor to sign House Bill 1049 into law.

Currently, insurance companies can cancel, refuse to renew, or completely deny homeowners/renters coverage based solely on the breed or mix of dog owned by a customer.

House Bill 1049 (aka the Dog Breed Insurance Underwriting Protection Act) would protect Illinois pet owners from these breed-discriminatory insurance practices.

Nevada, Arizona, and New York have all recently enacted laws preventing such discrimination in the insurance market. It's time for Illinois to do the same.
