According to the Indiana Auto Body Association (IABA), the organization that originally pushed for the bill, the amendments were added last minute. Due to these changes, it has withdrawn its support.
“As many are aware, the IABA has been working with Senator Mark Messmer on Senate Bill 164,” the group said in a Facebook post. “The [bill] was heard … by the House Insurance Committee, where a last-minute amendment was thrown in that we WILL NOT support … The IABA Board Members and a few others are working with Senator Messmer to see that the amended bill does not pass at it reads currently.”
The bill was passed on to the Senate, which has refused to concur with the House Committee’s amendments.
