Assembly Passes Big I NY Priority Anti-Arson and Supplemental Spousal Liability Bills

Scott Hobson BW Blog Headshot_80x103.jpgWe are excited to report that on Monday, March 25th, the New York State Assembly unanimously passed two of our high priority bills. The first bill will eliminate the anti arson application in New York City​, which is the only jurisdiction which still requires it. The second bill makes common-sense changes to the recent supplemental spousal liability opt-out law. The changes will exempt unmarried policyholders from automatic enrollment in the coverage, and will not apply automatic enrollment to commercial auto policies. ​

Big I New York has lobbied strongly in support of both bills and recently met with committee chairman David Weprin (D, Queens), to express our support for their passage. Both bills must now be passed by the NYS Senate and signed by the Governor before becoming law.
