Reps. Royce, Duckworth Introduce H.R. 4669, the Servicemembers Insurance Relief Act

Yesterday, Congressman Ed Royce (R-Calif.), a senior member of the House Financial Services Committee, and U.S. Rep. Tammy Duckworth (D-Ill.), a veteran of the Iraq war and a member of the House Armed Services Committee, introduced the Servicemembers Insurance Relief Act (H.R. 4669).

The legislation would allow members of the military and their families to keep their current auto insurance policy when they move from state to state, as their orders often require.  It also makes the current state-based insurance regulatory system more accommodating to servicemembers that currently have to change auto insurance policies every time they relocate across state lines.

“Members of the military must change auto insurance policies with every move across state lines, and the Servicemembers Insurance Relief Act eliminates that cumbersome requirement for our brave men and women in uniform,” said Rep. Royce. “This bipartisan legislation makes a simple but meaningful change to current law that will lessen the burden on servicemembers and their families during times of transition.”
