WASHINGTON, D.C. -- July 31, 2018 -- The American Insurance Association's Stef Zielezienski, senior vice president and general counsel, released the following statement in response to Ohio Governor John Kasich's signing of SB 239 yesterday: 

"We applaud Governor Kasich and the Ohio legislature for decisively repudiating the ALI’s Restatement of the Law of Liability Insurance. Given that the ALI chose to rewrite the law, rather than restate it, we expect Ohio to be the first of many state legislatures to reject the project." 

Background: Among other provisions, SB 239 states that the ALI's Restatement of the Law, Liability Insurance does not constitute the public policy of the state of Ohio.
