The Louisiana House of Representatives has passed a bill that “moves the regulation of motor vehicle service contract providers from the Dept. of Insurance to the secretary of state.”
The bill also expands the term “service contract” to “include a contract or agreement for … the repair of chips or cracks in or the replacement of motor vehicle windshields as a result of damage caused by road hazards.”
The bill, HB 522, was pre-filed on March 2 by Rep. Paula Davis and was referred to the Committee on Insurance. It was read by the committee for the first time on March 12; reported with amendments on March 28; and read, amended, ordered engrossed, and passed to its third reading on March 29. It passed the House unanimously in an amended format on April 5 and now is under review of the Senate.
