On Thursday, February 28, the Maryland House Economic Matters Committee will consider HB1203, a bill that would prohibit insurance companies from excluding coverage or refusing homeowner or tenant liability insurance based on the breed or size of dog you own.
Currently, only two states — Pennsylvania and Michigan — have laws that prevent insurance companies from discriminating against dog owners. Let’s change the momentum, starting right here in Maryland!
