2022 House Bill 6185

Senate Roll Call 447: Passed

To repeal provisions of a 1933 law aimed at preventing runs on insurance companies. The law established that “during any period of public calamity resulting in abnormal financial losses to and unforeseen and excessive disbursements by any insurance company,” the state insurance commissioner may adopt “special regulations” that prescribe limits or restrictions on “disbursements, loans, investment of funds or other disposition of assets” that are deemed necessary “for the preservation of the rights of all of the (insurance company’s) policy-holders.” Amending this largely-obsolete Great Depression-era law is part of a Republican legislative package revising various laws to incorporate lessons learned from the 2020 coronavirus epidemic.
