The National Council of State Insurance Legislators (NCOIL) approved the Consumer Protection Model Towing Act at their Summer Meeting in Salt Lake City. The Act will serve as a guide to aide state lawmakers better regulate the towing industry, help protect accident victims from overzealous solicitation and addresses other key areas. NICB served as a valued resource to NCOIL on the model's formation. Special thanks to Indiana State Representative Matt Lehman on sponsoring the model as well as contributions from NICB member companies, the National Association of Mutual Insurance Companies and others.
