Massachusetts: HB 913 would prohibit insurance breed discrimination
Posted on June 19, 2009 by stopbslcom
Massachusetts HB 913 would prohibit insurers from discriminating against homeowners based on the homeowners' breed of dog.

It would still allow insurers to drop coverage for homeowners whose dogs have actually been declared dangerous. It also requires all dog bites that result in medical attention to be reported to the Massachusetts Department of Public Health. The biting dog's breed is supposed to be included in the report.

Text of the proposed legislation can be found here: http://www.mass.gov/legis/bills/house/186/ht00/ht00913.htm

The bill has been assigned to the Joint Committee on Financial Services. Contact info for this committee can be found here: THE JOINT COMMITTEE ON FINANCIAL SERVICES

Due to the very user-unfriendly interface of the MA Legislature website, I am not sure where this bill is in the legislative process. I will provide further details when I get them.
