CONCORD, N.H. – May 31, 2018 – The American Insurance Association issued the following statement to thank Governor Sununu for signing a commercial lines regulatory modernization bill (HB 1389), which goes into effect on July 24, 2018:

“A competitive, open insurance marketplace is essential to the well-being of any state’s business community,” said Alison Cooper, AIA’s vice president for state affairs, northeast region. “We applaud Governor Sununu, Commissioner Sevigny and his team, and New Hampshire’s policymakers for their commitment to this fact. We look forward to a swift implementation of this legislation.”

Background:  New Hampshire’s commercial modernization bill reduces the large commercial policyholder annual premium threshold from $50,000 to $25,000 and limits policy form filing requirements for 15 lines of business to submission for informational and auditing purposes only.
