Auto Glass Bill Introduced in Connecticut House
January 18, 2011

A Connecticut representative has introduced a bill to the state’s house that would address both liability insurance coverage required for those who hold auto glass licenses in the state and would prohibit those who process auto glass claims from having a financial interest in a business that installs auto glass.

Regarding liability insurance, Conn. H.B. 5283 would require that all auto glass contractors holding an “AG-1 license” in the state have a general liability insurance policy “of not less than one million dollars.”

Likewise, if passed, the bill would “prohibit an adjuster for an insurance company, automobile physical damage appraiser or individual or entity that processes claims for automotive glass replacement work from having a financial interest in a business that installs automotive glass.”

House Rep. Robert Megna introduced the bill on Friday, January 14. It has been referred to the House’s joint committee on insurance and real estate. Megna was not available for comment at press time.
