A person’s financial history should not determine how much they pay for auto insurance, say three south central Senators.
“If you have a low credit score you pay a higher amount,” said Sen. Oletha Faust-Goudeau, D-Wichita. “We want to deal with a person’s driving record.”
The proposal, Senate Bill 24, would make it so insurance companies could not set premiums based on credit scores.
She is co-sponsoring the measure with Republican Senators Ty Masterson, of Andover, and Dick Kelsey, of Goddard.
The bill has been sent to the Senate Financial Institutions and Insurance Committee, but a hearing has not yet been scheduled.
