The bill would require an insurer to determine if the vehicle owner had chosen a repairer, and it would prohibit an insurer from recommending a repairer if the vehicle owner has chosen one.

The National Association of Mutual Insurance Companies, through its retained counsel in Washington, distributed a fact sheet in opposition to H.B. 3053 to members of the state Legislature.
