Wyoming Auto Insurance Bill Axed by Committee

January 20, 2005

CHEYENNE, Wyo. – A bill that would have increased automobile insurance liability limits in the state of Wyoming for the first time in two decades was passed over by a legislative committee, according to the Casper Star-Tribune. The House Transportation, Highways and Military Affairs Committee voted against the bill 8-1.

Liability limits for drivers would have increased from $25,000 to $50,000 for one person and would have increased from $50,000 to $100,000 for two people. The current level does not insure against an act of negligence on the state's roads, according to Amanda Newton, a representative for the Wyoming Trial Lawyers Association.Dave Uechner, an attorney for the American Insurance Association, believes the problem is not the liability limits, but rather uninsured drivers. Uechner said if the bill had passed it would have pushed people out of obtaining insurance. "Think of the 19-year-old girl that is going to the local community college and is working part-time at the local McDonald's," said Uechner. "She's got minimum coverage because she's working part-time. She can't afford more."
