Important Legislative Issues
by John Pisula
- PIP Repeal (HB1063 and SB1766) continues to be debated. Though the House and Senate versions are very different, each contains mandates for BI and would be effective January 1, 2018.
- AOB (HB1421 and SB1218) appears to be going nowhere at this point.
- Workers’ Compensation (HB7085 and SB1582) meaningful reform seems to be getting put off at this point as the two bills are not similar in meeting the goals supported by the business and insurance industry.
- Diligent Effort interpretation was cleared up by DFS and it is no longer an issue, FAIA stated that “agents can export CR risks on a difference in coverage and properly filling out the DE form”.
