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.
