Missouri Anti-Steering Bill Stalls But Will Be Revived in ’09

While the Missouri Senate Small Business, Insurance and Industrial
Relations Committee passed Senate Bill 775 sponsored by Sen. Wes
Shoemyer, the anti-steering bill isn’t likely to move any further since
the legislative session ends on May 16.

The bill requires insurance carriers to inform auto insurance
policyholders on first contact that they can choose any repair facility
they want. The bill will be reintroduced next year, according to Sen.
Shoemyer’s spokesperson Kathy Armstrong.

"The successful thing was that we at least got the insurance guys
coming into our office and talking to the senator and them
understanding that he’s serious about [steering,] and they’ve agreed to
work on this over the summer," said Armstrong.
