Missouri Senate Committee to Review Anti-Steering Bill at Public Hearing Tomorrow

The Missouri Senate's Small Business, Insurance & Industrial Relations Committee will hold a hearing tomorrow at 1 p.m. Central Standard Time to review a bill that would require insurers to inform vehicle owners immediately on first contact that they have the right to choose the repair facility of their choice to repair their vehicles. Senate Bill 775, which was pre-filed on December 1 by Sen. Wes Shoemyer, also would mandate that insurers "halt any efforts to re-direct, refer or otherwise influence the vehicle owner in the choice of repair facility or program other than the repair facility chosen by the vehicle owner once the vehicle owner has stated they have chosen a repair facility."

Tomorrow's hearing is open to the public and will be held in room SCR 1.

Sen. Shoemyer was not available for comment at press time.
