Last Action : Signed into Law : 08-04-05
Current Status : Chapter 88 SLA 05 : 08-04-05

| Sponsor Statement |

05-03-05 : The measure has three basic purposes. First, the bill will create an environment where insurers compete more vigorously on rates and products offered to consumers. Second, HB 216 will encourage insurers who are in the Alaska market to stay here and will attract new insurers to Alaska. This will result in more competition, which will give consumers more choices and more competitive prices. Third, HB 216 is in line with the national movement away from strict government price controls toward a more flexible, more competitively oriented system for the regulation of insurance rates and forms. Removed fees from the bill on the floor.
