Arizona Glass Association Continues to Fight State's Auto Glass Fraud Bill
February 12, 2010

The Arizona Glass Association (AGA) is continuing its efforts to fight a bill currently being reviewed by the state's house that would target auto glass businesses and would detail several items related to insurance fraud. (CLICK HERE for related story.)

"I believe we are gaining ground, but as always we might be being told what we want to hear," says Kerry Soat, vice president of the AGA. "Until the bills are gone or greatly amended, I won't be happy. They never should have been written to begin with and the other states should keep a sharp eye out for the insurance companies to try and sneak something past them."

Soat spoke out against the bill, H.B. 2463, at a recent public hearing. (CLICK HERE for related story.)

He also prepared a report following that hearing that he has sent to the legislators on the state's insurance committee.

"As I have clearly stated in the past, the fraudulent practices addressed in this bill are already against the law," writes Soat. "Some of the practices listed in this bill are not deserving of a felony and should be re-addressed."
