This week, independent agents from across the state participated in virtual meetings with state lawmakers, urging them to pass photo inspection modernization as part of the state budget. Governor Hochul's executive budget proposal includes legislation to allow carriers to waive CARCO inspections, and we are pushing the Senate and Assembly to follow suit in their respective budget proposals.

Independent Agents Advocacy Week began with a kickoff session keynoted by Senator Neil Breslin, chairman of the influential Senate Insurance Committee and sponsor of photo inspection reform legislation. “On photo inspection, we're pushing it again very hard…hopefully we'll get it passed and signed into law and we'll all be happy," said Senator Breslin.

Throughout the week, Big I NY members met with nearly two dozen senior lawmakers and staff members who have direct influence on the legislative budget proposals. Agents shared stories of how their customers are impacted by this antiquated requirement and urged lawmakers to act swiftly to pass common-sense reform. The response from lawmakers was overall positive.

Additional legislative meetings will be held in the coming weeks, as the budget process advances toward the April 1st deadline.
