Further amends the Illinois Affordable Housing Act by adding the definition for "common household pet" to a Section that defines certain terms under the Act (rather than defining "common household pet" under the Section concerning pets in affordable housing projects). Provides that tenants of affordable housing for low and very low-income families shall be allowed to keep at least 2 common household pets (rather than shall be allowed to keep no more than 4 cats or 3 dogs).
