To whom was referred a Bill (H. 3888), to amend Section 38-73-540, Code of Laws of South Carolina, 1976, relating to assigned risks, etc., respectfully
That they have duly and carefully considered the same, and recommend that the same do pass:
THOMAS C. ALEXANDER, for Committee.
TO AMEND SECTION 38-73-540, CODE OF LAWS OF SOUTH CAROLINA, 1976, RELATING TO ASSIGNED RISKS, SO AS TO PROHIBIT ASSIGNED RISK POOLS FROM REFUSING TO ACCEPT WORKERS' COMPENSATION INSURANCE POLICIES ON THE BASIS THAT THEY PROVIDE COVERAGE TO VENDORS PROVIDING LOGGING SERVICES TO A NAMED INSURED.
Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina:
SECTION 1. Section 38-73-540 of the 1976 Code is amended to read:
"Section 38-73-540. Agreements may be made among insurers with respect to the equitable apportionment among them of insurance which may be afforded applicants who are in good faith entitled to, but who are unable to procure, insurance through ordinary methods, and the insurers may agree among themselves on the use of reasonable rate modifications for this insurance. These agreements and rate modifications are subject to the commissioner's approval. However, regardless of any provision of this section or this article to the contrary, no assigned risk pool may refuse to accept a policy of workers' compensation insurance on the basis that it provides coverage to a vendor who provides logging services to a named insured or on the basis that the policy provides coverage to an association of these vendors."
SECTION 2. This act takes effect upon approval by the Governor.
