Michigan Senate Bill 291 would prohibit insurers from requiring body shops to use specific vendors for parts.
Michigan State Sen. Joe Hune has introduced a bill that would prohibit insurers from requiring body shops to use specific vendors for parts.
Michigan Senate Bill 291 would amend the state’s insurance code by adding this section:
“An insurer shall not require, directly or indirectly, through a contract, program or policy, a person that operates an automobile repair facility to use a specific vendor or process for the procurement of parts or other materials.”
If passed, the bill would take effect 90 days after signed into law by the governor.
