​ Photo Inspection Reform Campaign Kicks Into High Gear – Petition Signatures Needed

This week, our campaign to pass the Auto Insurance Consumer Relief Act, which would make photo inspections (CARCOs) optional at the discretion of insurance companies, gained major momentum.

Key Committee Vote Scheduled:

On Friday, our campaign achieved a key milestone when our bill was scheduled for a vote by the Senate Insurance Committee. This marks the first time in history the Senate has voted on this bill.​​ It must pass the committee vote, which will be held on Monday, May 25th, before it can be voted on by the full Senate. The scheduling of this vote follows three months of grassroots advocacy by Big I NY, including emails and meetings with approximately two dozen key Senators. On Friday, Big I NY agents called members of the committee urging them to vote yes on the bill.

Petition Launched, Signatures Needed:

This week, we launched a grassroots petition campaign with the goal of 500 signatures. Help us keep up the pressure and sign the petition today!

Media Campaign Launches:

On Monday, Big I NY, through our NY First Committee, Issued a press release kicking off a statewide media campaign aimed at building support for the Auto Insurance Consumer Relief Act. The release was covered in the Insurance Journal, InsuranceNewsNet, and Harlem World Magazine. Throughout the months of April and May, Big I NY will take to the media to amplify our impact, including agent letters to the editor, digital and print media, and broadcast interviews.

Next Steps:

Once the bill has cleared a vote by the Insurance Committee, it will be sent to the floor of the Senate, where it must “age" for three days. Then the bill can be brought to a vote by the sponsor's request. Stay tuned for the next steps to get engaged and help us pass the Auto Insurance Consumer Relief Act this session!
