JEFFERSON CITY, MO – JUNE 22, 2018 – The American Insurance Association issued the following statement to thank Governor Parson for signing a commercial lines regulatory modernization bill (SB 594), which applies to policies issued or renewed on or after January 1, 2019:

“A competitive, open insurance marketplace is essential to the well-being of any state’s business community,” said Steve Schneider, AIA’s vice president for state affairs, midwest region. “We applaud Governor Parson and Missouri’s legislators for recognizing its importance, and look forward to seeing the bill swiftly implemented.”

Background: Missouri’s commercial modernization bill exempts many types of commercial lines from rate filing requirements and, for the first time in the state, adds a policy form filing exception for large commercial risks when the aggregate annual premium for a policyholder exceeds $100,000.
