Statement of Liz Reynolds
State Affairs Manager
National Association of Mutual Insurance Companies
"It's been a long process in Alabama, but we are delighted with the outcome, particularly the May 16 passage of HB 405 that makes it more difficult for 'storm scammers' to prey on homeowners when they are at their most vulnerable.
"NAMIC commends the work of Alabama lawmakers to ensure that homeowners who endure a destructive storm are not victimized twice - once by the damage left by the storm then again by fly-by-night roofing contractors who use high-pressure sales tactics to con storm victims. These so-called contractors are like fungus that spreads from state to state in the wake of natural disaster and devastation, creating problems for property owners and legitimate contractors."
