Full report in PDF format

  • The Department initiated steps to increase the efficiency of its Uninsured Motorist Program. Currently, because the Department's records are not up-to-date, consumers who are insured may receive noncompliance notices. It will be important that the Legislature monitor the Department's efforts to improve its database.
  • However, proposed changes to the law that decreased the insurance companies' time to notify the Department of policy changes did not pass during the 1997 Legislative Session.
