02:33 PM -- HB 16-1293



Representative Melton introduced House Bill 16-1293. The bill requires automobile insurers to submit to the Department of Revenue (DOR) a statement notifying DOR when a motor vehicle:



• has been damaged and needs repairs exceeding the vehicle's value;

• has been designated by the insurer as a total loss; or

• was recovered after being reported as stolen and an insurance claim for theft has already been paid by the insurer.



Upon notification, the DOR must issue a new certificate of title branded "insurance loss" to the vehicle. If the insurer's statement includes facts that qualify the vehicle as a salvage vehicle, the DOR must issue the vehicle a salvage title instead. Representative Melton distributed amendments L.002, L.003, and L.004 to the bill (Attachments A, B, and C).
