An Act To Permit Disability Insurance To Be Offered through the Surplus Lines Market
Emergency preamble. Whereas, acts and resolves of the Legislature do not become effective until 90 days after adjournment unless enacted as emergencies; and
Whereas, Maine residents who work in certain professions and occupations are unable to obtain adequate disability insurance coverage; and
Whereas, this bill would allow disability insurance to be offered through the surplus lines market if other admitted insurance is not available; and
Whereas, in the judgment of the Legislature, these facts create an emergency within the meaning of the Constitution of Maine and require the following legislation as immediately necessary for the preservation of the public peace, health and safety; now, therefore,
Sec. 1. 24-A MRSA §2002-A, sub-§1, ¶B, as enacted by PL 1993, c. 153, §16, is amended to read:
Emergency clause. In view of the emergency cited in the preamble, this legislation takes effect when approved.
