Nixon signs four bills, including ride-hailing insurance measure

Gov. Jay Nixon on Thursday signed four bills into law, including one that creates insurance coverage requirements for ride-hailing services like Uber and Lyft.

SB 947, which was sponsored by Sen. Mike Parson, R-Bolivar, requires ride-hailing companies and their drivers to maintain primary automobile insurance. It creates additional protections for consumers by requiring higher minimum insurance requirements, Nixon said in a statement.

Nixon, a Democrat, also signed House Bill 2194, which includes a number of provisions dealing with insurance regulations. It includes the requirement that an insurance policyholder be notified when an insurer transfers an auto or home policy among affiliated insurers within an insurance company holding system.

Nixon also signed into law one resolution declaring September as “Suicide Prevention Awareness Month” and another designating May as “Cystic Fibrosis Awareness Month” and October as “Brachial Plexus Awareness Month.”
