-- June 2016 --
There were several bills of interest to the industry concerning anti-fraud initiatives in the last New York state legislative session. A bill on "storm chasers" that would provide greater regulation of out-of-state roofers and other contractors who descend upon New York homeowners and businesses after a natural disaster passed the Assembly, but stalled in the Senate.
The Senate passed bills on retroactive cancellation for fraudulent payments and anti-runner legislation, but the associated Assembly bills fizzled. The Senate also had passed a bill targeting out-of-state garaging for rate evasion, but the Assembly did not act on this measure.
The industry hopes to have these anti-fraud initiatives reintroduced and advance through the legislative process in the Fall 2016 legislative session.
