Kentucky state Rep. Steve Riggs, D-Louisville, successfully ushered his measure HB 421 through the Kentucky Legislature.
The "storm scammer" legislation is a collaboration within the business industry and includes sections to protect Kentucky's legitimate and ethical contractors as well as homeowners from roofing replacement schemes.
"HB 421 is a much-needed consumer protection, and the National Association of Mutual Insurance Companies applauds Representative Riggs and the Kentucky General Assembly for this legislation that helps consumers who get stuck holding the price tag by illegitimate roofing contractors," said Erin Collins, NAMIC state affairs manager. "As storms are continuing to sweep the country including recent catastrophic tornadoes in Kentucky, HB 421 comes at a critical juncture to protect consumers and support the legitimate contracting industry."
