​ Governor Hochul Signs Bill Prohibiting Consideration of Dog Breed in Underwriting

​On October 30th, Governor Hochul signed legislation prohibiting insurance carriers from refusing to issue, renew, cancel, or charge a higher premium for a homeowners' liability coverage based upon specific breed of an insured's dog. Big I NY opposed this legislation, expressing concerns that limiting underwriting flexibility would lead higher premiums for all homeowners. The legislation takes effect January 28th, 2022, and applies to all policies issued, renewed, modified, altered or amended on or after that date.
