Consolidators: Service King Now Providing Collision Repairs in Chicago
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.
