Introduced by Rep. Jon Bumstead (R) on March 15, 2016 To repeal a controversial tax credit that auto insurance companies can collect based on their payments into an “insurance placement facility” or high risk pool for individuals unable to get coverage through the regular risk-based underwriting process. Reportedly the companies are collecting $80 million annually for the credit, which they claim would be tacked on to insurance bills if it is repealed. Official Text and Analysis.
