Bill Caption

Relating to the premium surcharge certain automobile insurers are required to assess against an insured convicted of certain offenses.  

Fiscal Notes

From the Legislative Budget Board: no significant fiscal implication to the state is anticipated.

Bill Analysis

SB 1490 would amend the Insurance Code to clear up the fact that an automobile insurer may assess a premium surcharge as stated in the insurer’s plan, rather than the Department of Insurance setting the surcharge. This will clean up an outdated section of code which is no longer relevant to current insurance law. 

Vote Recommendation Notes

As is an administrative bill with no clear connection to our liberty principles, therefore we remain neutral.
