NAMIC Urges Connecticut Governor to Veto Storm Shutter Legislation

The National Association of Mutual Insurance Companies urged Connecticut Gov. Dannel Malloy to veto H.B. 5502, which prevents carriers from requiring current and potential policyholders who present a heightened risk for storm damage from having to install storm shutters.

“Enactment of this measure will be a step backward for Connecticut,” said John Murphy, NAMIC’s state affairs director for the Northeast region. “The incredible damage and destruction caused by Superstorm Sandy underscored the importance of storm preparation and the value of undertaking appropriate mitigation efforts. This legislation removes an incentive for at-risk homeowners to implement a common sense mitigation measure.”
