The Indiana House recently voted to pass a bill aimed to prohibit steering by insurers with amendments. The bill was returned to the Senate, which “dissented from the House amendments.”
The bill, SB 164, aims to “prohibit certain activities by an adjuster, insurer, insurance producer, or other representative of an insurer in connection with a motor vehicle repair; [and] makes certain activities by a repair shop in connection with a motor vehicle repair for which insurance coverage is available deceptive acts.”
The bill was introduced on January 3 by Sen. Mark Messmer and passed the Senate on January 30. It was then referred to the Indiana House of Representatives for review, where it was passed with amendments on February 27.
Conferees and advisors have been appointed for both the House and Senate to review the amendments.
