ARIZONA BILL FOR HOTEL SMOKES, MICHIGAN MEASURE FOR SECURITY INSURANCE BREAKS ARE BEING WEIGHED
The Security Industry Association (SIA) announces a pair of legislative updates for Arizona and Michigan. Arizona HB 2055, introduced by Rep. Herschella Horton (D-14), would amend Section 36-1646 of the Arizona Revised Statutes to state that an approved smoke detector “shall be installed in each guest unit in a motel or hotel that is not equipped with automatic fire extinguishing equipment.” The bill had been prefiled on Dec. 20, 1999, for consideration during the second regular session of the 1999-2000 legislature.
Michigan HB 5155, introduced by Rep. Derrick Hale (D-14) on Dec. 2, 1999, relates to unfair methods of competition in the insurance business. The bill states that reduced premium rates would be offered for home insurance (other than inland marine insurance provided by policy floaters or endorsements) for a variety of reasons, including the installation of “security and safety devices, including locks, smoke detectors, and similar related devices.” The bill has been referred to the Committee on Insurance and Financial Services.
