Re: Missouri Governor Nixon Signs Legislation Allowing Farm Mutuals to Serve Consumers via the Internet
“Governor Jay Nixon and Missouri lawmakers took an important step in modernizing Missouri’s insurance infrastructure in enacting SB 609 by Senator Mike Parson (R - Bolivar) and HB 1079 by Representative Don Gosen (R - Ballwin). The bills extend a 2013 insurance modernization law to Missouri’s farm mutuals, which provide coverage to Missouri’s agricultural communities.
“The legislation empowers consumers to receive and access insurance documents electronically, thereby reducing cost and clutter. The bills also protect important privacy rights and respect the choices of customers who want to continue to be served by traditional methods.”
