Daily Legislative Brief from March 15, 2023


SB 1002 - Relating to Motor Vehicle Glass.

On Wednesday, March 15th, SB 1002 by Senator Linda Stewart (D-Orlando) was heard by the Senate Insurance and Banking committee and was reported favorably with 11 yeas and 0 nays. AIF stood in support of this legislation.

SB 1002 provides that a motor vehicle repair shop may not offer a customer a rebate, gift, gift card, cash, coupon, or other item of value in exchange for making an insurance claim for motor vehicle glass replacement or repair. The bill also prohibits the assignment of benefits for auto glass repairs.

SB 1002 will now go to the Senate Commerce and Tourism Committee for consideration.

AIF supports efforts by the legislature to bring more transparency and fairness in the auto repair market between insurance providers and policy holders. Litigation should not be auctioned off frivolously when the alternative is better for the policy holder in the long run.
