Minnesota Bill Would Prohibit Dog Breed Discrimination by Insurance Companies

Minnesota Senate File 762 would prohibit insurance companies from: “1) refusing to issue or renew an insurance policy or contract, (2) canceling an insurance policy or contract, or (3) charging or imposing an increased premium or rate for an insurance policy or contract, based solely on the fact that the homeowner harbors or owns a dog of a specific breed or mixture of breeds.” The bill has been referred to the Senate Committee on Commerce and Consumer Protection.
