NOTE: The Adobe Acrobat Reader is necessary to view the PDF versions of the summaries available in this section.

2011, 2012 & 2013

This section of the website summarizes bills enacted during the 2011, 2012 and 2013 Sessions amending the Insurance, Banking Law or other related laws. These brief descriptions of the laws are intended only to provide highlights of the legislation and should under no circumstances be used in place of the full text of the law or regarded as interpretation of legislative intent or of Department of Financial Services policy.

2009

The documents available on this section of our Website include legislative summaries of insurance-related Governor's Program bills and Insurance Department bills for 2009. The summaries are intended to provide a general overview, and should not be relied upon as a substitute for the actual bill language.

2008

The documents available on this section of our Website include legislative summaries of insurance-related bills that were signed into law in 2008. Although most of these bills amend the New York Insurance Law, summaries are also included of insurance-related bills that amend chapters other than Insurance Law. The summaries are intended to provide a general overview, and should not be relied upon as a substitute for the actual bill language.

In addition, summaries are included of some insurance-related bills that were introduced, but not passed, in 2008. Summaries are also included of insurance-related bills that passed the Legislature but were vetoed by the Governor. For bills that were vetoed, the Governor's veto message is included with each summary.
