Assemblyman Chris Tague (R,C,I,Ref-Schoharie) and Sen. James L. Seward (R/C/I/Ref-Oneonta) are pleased to announce their insurance priorities for the 2019 Legislative Session. Their particular focus is two-fold, with an analysis to reform both tort law and the scaffold law.Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â
I am immensely honored to be working alongside Sen. Seward to develop a plan of action to reform personal insurance issues, Tague said. People need to have a sense of security and confidence in the law protecting them and their businesses, and there is no one more qualified to help develop the needed reforms than Sen. Seward. Together, I am hopeful that we can get these reforms through in the 2019 session.
Having chaired the Senate Insurance Committee for a number of years, I know full well the importance of this vital business sector our hometown agents in particular protect consumers and enhance our local economy, Sen. James L. Seward said. Working with Assemblyman Tague, I am confident we can enact additional reforms that will strengthen these vital employers while shielding needed protections for all.
