Description
The present Senate Insurance Committee was created with Senate Resolution 58 on August 30, 1994, and charged to hear bills relating to insurance, indemnity, surety, warranty agreements, liens, claims, unclaimed property, collections and franchises. The Senate Insurance Committee Records consist of 54.5 cubic feet of Senate Insurance Committee files, including the Senate Insurance and Indemnity Committee (1981-1982), Senate Insurance Claims and Corporations Committee (1983-1994), the Subcommittee on Earthquake Insurance (1987-1992), and the Senate Insurance Committee (1995-2004).
Background
The Insurance and Indemnity Committee was created by Senate Resolution 8 on January 5, 1981, existing only in the 1981-1982 session. The committee's focus then was on bills relating to insurance and indemnity. The committee's scope was broadened in the 1983-1984 session when Senate Resolution 11 passed on March 17, 1983, establishing the Senate Insurance, Claims and Corporation Committee. The committee heard bills relating to insurance, indemnity, surety, warranty, agreements, liens, claims, including retail credit, unclaimed property, collections, corporations, and franchises. The name and responsibilities would remain as such until the 1995-1996 legislative session when the present Senate Insurance Committee was created with Senate Resolution 58 on August 30, 1994. With the change in name, the committee would no longer hear bills concerning corporations and retail credit claims. The Senate Insurance Committee was charged with hearing bills relating to insurance, indemnity, surety, warranty agreements, liens, claims, unclaimed property, collections and franchises.
