New York State Assemblyman Kenneth Zebrowski has introduced a bill that would prohibit breed discrimination in rental housing in New York State. While various media outlets have reported that it would end breed discrimination in New York City public housing (which is true) the bill is so much broader than than and would prohibit breed discrimination in all rental housing in New York State. This bill appears to have solid support among Assembly members.
Please call and/or email the office of your New York State Assembly Member and ask them to support bill A02065 that prohibits breed discrimination in housing, then call and/or email your New York State Senate representative and tell them you support the Senate version of the bill, S05944.
Legislation like this is an incredibly important step toward a world where every dog is judged as an individual. Please contact your representatives today.
