Massachusetts Rep. Re-Files Anti-Steering Bill for 2009-2010 Session
A Massachusetts representative has pre-filed a bill designed to prohibit insurers from directing policyholders to specific auto glass companies. The bill, filed this year as 1003 by Rep. Ronald Mariano, was reviewed in last year's session, but met its end on the last day of the session-after preceding to the Senate from the House.
A spokesman from the financial services committee said the earliest this year's bill will be read is likely April, but it could be as late as November; at that time, a public hearing will be held.
He expected the committee assignments of bills to be provided by end of February.
Last year's bill was sponsored by Rep. Robert Spellane.
