According to the report, Kupchick’s bill mentions breeds such as pit-bull type terriers and rottweilers that often cause insurers to raise rates or to deny coverage to homeowners. The Courant also cited insurance industry leaders who said that the proposed law would force companies to hike policy rates for everyone.
